Yes, we brought up Daleks and Nine Inch Nails in our review of their last album, but there’s still no better way to describe the oppressive sonic framework that Odonis Odonis are currently operating within.
We’ll call this one the Dalek house party. Lyrical content is kept to a minimum—it’s meant to be felt as much as heard (your speakers will rattle and hum). It’s the kind of dance music Trent Reznor would be making today if he was still edgy and had a soft spot for Mr. Oizo. It’s reminiscent, as well, of certain portions of Primal Scream’s XTRMNTR.
No Pop is sure to frighten small children and the elderly. The doom is palpable. Check out “Nasty Boy” below.
Yep, that’s a people-vulture alright. Don’t see many of those around, these days.
This is a big one, too. That half-Mork, half-Cyberman dude doesn’t stand much of a chance against its death rays. But it looks like a few other contenders plan to test their luck. Will a Sectaur triumph? How about Darth Maul?
“People-Vultures” comes from King Gizzard’s Nonagon Infinity album.
Like Year Zero-era Nine Inch Nails and Beyond The Black Rainbow coming together to soundtrack a dystopian near-future action film.
Odonis Odonis mutate into a different band with every outing (they’re on their third), and this is by far their sharpest and most punishing effort. An album full of Daleks yelling “Exterminate!” would have approximately the same cerebral impact.
Aside from a brief respite mid-record when they hit a stride that’s almost Smiths-like, these lads are on a single-minded mission to drill into your psyche and implant the fear of a “pending anthropogenic apocalypse.” They bring up an apt quotation from The Fly in the album’s press notes that we’ll repeat here: “I’m talking about penetration beyond the veil of the flesh! A deep penetrating dive into the plasma pool!”
Take a dive with “That’s How It Goes,” below.
More Or Les likes to rap about food (as you see above), but his new passion is Doctor Who. Head to his Bandcamp page to pick up his Doctor Who tribute album, Bigger On The Inside: A Time Traveller’s Mixtape, for free. Sample the track “Bigger On The Inside” below.
“My ship travels through space and time / and is bigger on the inside.” Stellar.
