Odist are an experimental rock trio from Atlanta, GA. They play in a style which is reminiscent of Chicago progressives Pelican with occasional FX drenched leads ala Jimi Hendrix. All their music is instrumental and incorporates drums, bass, guitars, loops, and effects to create a sweeping, wave-like sound which is driven along by intricate, hard hitting drum grooves and a riffing bass line. Tracks 1, 3, and 5 are moderate length pieces which have a less improvised feel. However, 2, 4, 6, and 7 are quite long and lean much more towards the bands experimental, possibly self-indulgent, tendencies. Overall, Odist’s On The 49th Day is intense and powerful, yet graceful and spacey. Check out more on Odist on their myspace.
