Edwin Mathis White (from the band Tonstartssbandht) creates a capella DIY gospel as Eola using loop stations and vocal processing effects pedals recorded to tape.

Odd Nosdam – Sisters Remix EP (w. Boards of Canada, Teebs)
VINYL + DIGI
*EP includes Boards of Canada remix, Teebs drum edit, and the OG Drum edit from Odd Nosdam
*cut LOUD at 45rpm
*ORANGE jacket w. FLUORESCENT TURQUOISE inner–sleeve design by Odd Nosdam
Kindred spirits Boards of Canada and Teebs make an appearance in dreamy collaboration with Odd Nosdam’s Sisters Remix EP. Throughout, the producers split time between cosmic, slow burning beats and reflective soundscapes littered with intriguing textures and mind-bending samples. Analogue sounds are generous and knowingly manipulated. Gorgeous samples are deployed, sturdy yet emotional. Cymbals explode.
“When the sun finally breaks through on an overcast day, Sisters was very much inspired by that wonderful moment… and the longing for it.”
