ODESZA- Bloom

ODESZA has electronic music-lovers eating out of the palms of their hands. They could produce a track entirely out of infant colic cries and the sounds from an Applebee's kitchen and internet bloggers around the world would call it a masterpiece. But credit where credit is due, ODESZA has all these hipsters worshiping them for a reason, and not just because they are fashioning the classic hipster wardrobe of fully-buttoned chambray and American Apparel hoodies (don't feel special that you have the same one, we literally ALL do... and yet it's still hipster? #hypocritical #hipsterISmainstream). ODESZA completes the hard feat of making experimental electronic music more appealing to the masses. Every single thing they create literally sounds effortless and it's hard to make electronic music feel organic but that's what this Seattle duo** does. Sure the Alice-In-Wonderland randomness that is the beginning is almost insufferable, but don't hit that next button! I was so close to saying "fuck it" and succumbing to my ADD too but wait it out til at least the 1:15 mark and you'll be in aural heaven. Just take a hit, close your eyes and chill out. You won't regret it.

**I say Seattle duo instead of their real names because literally just thinking about their ridiculous DJ names has me wanting to vomit like it's Saturday night and I just took one patron shot too many. But, in the spirit of providing you with actual information along with my ramblings, ODESZA is compromised of Harrison Mills (aka CatacombKid) and Clayton Knight (aka BeachesBeaches)............. SMHing so much at my desk right now my boss just asked me what's wrong... told her my Excel unexpectedly quit #ewps #T4Loverrealife
