Odyssey Vol. III:  Hills and Masts

Independent Release

Brooklyn duo Lawrence and Leigh have been largely under the radar since their creation.  Sticking mostly to their home city and the surrounding areas, they haven’t received that chance to really hit big.  So they started up their most recent three part epic enigmatically titled Odyssey.  The volume we have here is the third of the trilogy, though it is the first one to be released (yeah, I don’t get it either).  Its feels like a quiet reflection, something reminiscent of the ethereal qualities that made favorites great (the Fleet Foxes and Joanna Newsom particularly come to mind).  The project has been a year in the making and even though the third/first volume Hills and Masts has a very specific style, the act has promised each EP in the set with be starkly unique, each with their own sound.  I have a feeling the talent that’s apparent in their first major release will remain.  I’m excited to see what’s coming.
