For the first of many remixes/tunes-with-samples-we-couldn’t-imagine-clearing which we are releasing in 2013 is A Day in the Life of ODB. This one has been re-worked for live performance a number of times over the last year and is now finally seeing the light of day on our soundcloud.
It’s been a while since our last update, so here is what’s new in 2013. We just finished up a remix of Bear Porch for our good friend Creative Common. You should expect to hear that later this year when his Root EP remix album drops. Expect to see some more collaborations with Creative Common later this year as well!
We have been working on a variety of new music, and hope to have a new EP of all original material ready for the late spring/early summertime. We’ve also been sitting on a few remixes that will see the light of day before then. In the meantime enjoy “Eight Thumbs,” a track made entirely with sounds from electric bass.
We have also been fairly active on our Tumblr page. You can follow us over there for links, photos, and the occasional sneak peak at new material.
Our latest EP Slow Down drops today on Bandcamp & SoundCloud. It contains three raw and heavy tracks that we have been working on and playing out for the last year. You can download it for free, or toss us a donation.
That’s right, you heard right, the secret word for this weekend is Gulu-Gulu! We are doing a massive show this Saturday night at the all ages venue, and it’s free as always. Starting off at 8 O’clock sharp with a set of B-sides and other strange material, followed up by a long “regular” set. We’ll then take a break and let Dr. DK take over for an hour or so. To wrap things up our good buddy and keyboardist extraordinaire Justin Lopes will be joining us for a “live band” set of originals, covers, and improvisations.
We have got two shows coming up this Spring/Early Summer. First up on Friday April 6, we will be doing a set at the Rosebud Bar and Lounge in Somerville as part of “All Together Now” put on by UnRegular Radio. This is our first time playing in Somerville and we are happy to be on such a packed line-up. We will be on first at 9PM, followed by Pressure System, Bonfire Bandit, and Robot and the Wizard. 21+, $5 online $7 at the door.
We are also extremely stoked to be a part of Uphoria 2012! Our good friends at Crutopia have been hard at work all year planning this fest and we can personally guarantee that it will be sick. It all goes down May 17-19 at Kaplan farm in Millerton New York (our first show in NY as well!).
We wanted to give something out to start off your 2012 right, so download and enjoy our first EP ”MiaDW”! It’s available for free on our bandcamp page, featuring 8 tracks that have been in steady rotation at our live shows in 2011.

This Saturday we will be performing as part of the WILD MIND, an audio-visual experience happening at the Massasoit Lodge in Cambridge MA. There are going to be DJs, live painters, visual projections, Creative Common, and even more wild shit. The organizers of the event have asked everyone involved to highlight the creative process-break down the wall between performer and audience. So we will be getting weird with ya. New tunes, old tunes, live re-working of material, and live creation of new material entirely. This is not going to be your typical show.
Suggested donation of $5
