Cat No: ODTD018
Release Date: 22nd January 2021
Fur Coat’s Oddity label starts 2021 with a fresh edition of the acclaimed various artists ‘Odd Echoes Vol.4’. This instalment showcases some artists that are already known to the label, as well as many new additions to the family.
Fur Coat’s commitment to their label over the last few years has seen the imprint amass a dedicated following and an ever-growing list of respected and lauded releases. Utilising their Various Artists compilations, the duo has unearthed some extremely exciting talent in this world and given emerging artists a platform to exhibit their craft.
Diving into the package we are greeted with the melodic and emotional sounds that Oddity has their recognisable stamp. It’s clear though that each artist involved has developed their own signature sound and presents something unique to the VA. The ﬁrst half is formed of well-crafted tracks which ease us into the sound. Tracks the build and develop over time and help to kick start out musical exploration.
In true Oddity style, the second half of the package leans towards darker and more driving pieces. Casting the listener’s mind to the danceﬂoors which the tracks were meant to be played on. It’s a VA formed of 21 original tracks mostly from ﬁrst timers on the label, that all together solidify the identity of the series and sound of Oddity.
