Odonis Odonis, the project of Toronto's multi-instrumentalist Dean Tzenos
Hollandaze (Fat Cat, 2011) concocted a furious sound bred out of
juxtaposing surf guitar from the 1960s and
dark-punk outbursts from the 1980s, like
Dick Dale jamming with alternatively
Big Black or
a strategy best embodied by Ledged Up.
However, that strategy also yields melody, as the old-fashioned
voodoobilly of Busted Lip
and the vintage psychedelic-pop of Handle Bars prove.
If Blood Feast winks a bit too obviously at mainstream
and the hypnotic lullaby Seedgazer is too mellow to truly engage,
a case of unrestrained madness fuels
the pounding gargatuan (but way too brief) White Flag Riot
and the gloomy garage rant of New World.
Eccentric nuances pop up everywhere in the brutal and raw arrangements,
bestowing a sense of maximum instability onto the songs.
