It’s been nearly nine years since the release of AMTRAC‘s Came Along LP. Patiently waiting fans have been thrilled in recent months, though, as the artist revealed a long-awaited follow-up LP, Oddyssey, was on the horizon. The artist teased the album by gradually releasing singles leading up to its full reveal, building anticipation with tracks like “Between The Lines, “Radical,” “Accountable,” and more.
On April 3, AMTRAC unveiled the full canvas on which he’s been painting: a 14-track soundscape of rich sonic colors and thought-provoking instrumentation. He’s tapped artists like Alex Metric, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Saint Kenaire, and Lali Puna to lend their talents to the collection of tracks, and their contribution make the pieces shine all the more.
Oddyssey is out now Openers/RCA Records.
