Chadbourne, Eugene / Smith, Warren – “Odd Time” – [Engine Studios]
“Odd Times” is certainly odd – a collaboration between Chadbourne’s singing and banjo playing and Smith’s percussion, vibes and marimba. Off kilter tuning, playing and singing gives a new sound to the instruments and a dark edge to the lyrics which tackle political topics such as war, inequality, consumerism, etc. Track 4 is especially unsettling – a nightmarish horror tale.
I don’t have a good enough ear – but do these tunes also have odd time signatures?
