Odd Nosdam - Lost Wigs Of Ohio (Cassette)
These lost joints were put together with an MPC2000 + found records + the occasional Casio keyboard + VHS tapes. Produced 2000-2004 @ Mom’s, Cincinnati + 11th Ave, Oakland. Compiled, restored, reanimated 2012-2018 @ Burnco, Berkeley. - Odd Nosdam
Filled to the brim with released albums and content left on the cutting room floor, Odd Nosdam's body of work is abundant and revelatory. Encompassing a legacy of sonic deconstruction and revitalization, the sounds of Nosdam have reverberated through underground classics that go back over two decades. This includes iconic indie releases by Greenthink, cLOUDDEAD, Reaching Quiet, Sole, Sage Francis, Mike Patton's Peeping Tom, Boards of Canada, Jel, and so many more.
Nosdam's solo career has also been approached with dignity and unique expression, launching new content while excavating forgotten material created around his most beloved works. Odd Nosdam's forthcoming 40-track collection Lost Wigs of Ohio is another step in this unearthing process, rediscovering, restoring, and compiling never before heard music. This lost content, crafted between 2000 and 2004, includes versions and leftovers from his first Anticon solo album No More Wig For Ohio, cLOUDDEAD's catalog, and the one-off Why? collaboration, Reaching Quiet. The Lost Wigs of Ohio collection will release on June 1, 2018 through Nosdam's imprint Burnco Recs. Availability will be seen across digital platforms worldwide, along with a run of limited edition cassettes.
Over the course of the lengthy archive release Lost Wigs of Ohio, the thick haze of Nosdam's Tascam 8-track and MPC2000 are mutated to frequencies all his own, drawing on the smoldering state of heavy drums and sidewinding harmonies he's synonymous with. The source material for Lost Wigs of Ohio was mostly extracted from dusty DAT tapes and old hard drives, bringing forth his sonic contribution to Anticon's foundation.
Lost Wigs of Ohio is much more than a snapshot and serves as a raw schematic to the origins of a movement that is still pacing onward in today's underground and mainstream music communities. Lost Wigs of Ohio is Odd Nosdam at his most fundamental and raw state, pulled together to further establish his mark on modern experimental music.
