oddisee

June 16, 2012

We don’t get out much, but last night Rachel and I caught a truly inspiring live show – hip hop artist Oddisee at DC’s Black Cat. Oddisee’s instrumental albums Rock Creek Park and Traveling Man have seen heavy rotation in the dullshick household this year, but he’s also an mc – a member of DC-based Diamond District – and a truly refreshing voice.  Oddisee’s “first” album People Hear What They See released last month and, Rachel will attest, it’s made me a true believer. Last night’s small but enthusiastic crowd and the live band appearing together for the first time in advance of a tour of Europe made for an electric show. If you’re interested, check out this video of Oddisee and a member of the live band Olivier Daysoul performing a track from the new album:
