Album Notes
ODDISEA is a four-piece rock band from L.A. and Tyranny of Distance is their second independent release. The members took advantage of LA’s rich musical surroundings and cultures and produced an EP that is reflective of the LA environment. The sound sometimes becomes intense and strident, as city life can be. At the same time, the sound finds some kind of balance between the business of the city and peace in one’s mind.

The theme of this EP is “separation and inevitability of time’s passing,” and the songs were composed when a member temporarily relocated outside the U.S. The EP starts with “Open Sea”, a song of being at a beach, staring at the ocean, facing the changes to come. The EP closes with “Meditation,” a different musical state of mind. The EP grew out of the metamorphosis that was irreversible and imposed.

Packaged items include lyrics, artists’ liner notes, and credits. Recorded, mixed, and printed in the U.S.A. Mastered in Japan. Released on November 29, 2008.

The Tyranny of Distance exhilarates me. "Open Sea" is constantly churning with irresistible beats that are exotic but outside of genres -- Latin-like without being Latin and jazz, with trumpets and much unexpected percussion, but not just jazz. The other cuts are also unique; some moody, some brutal, some lonely. Not commercial. Yay. It is definitely an odd sea that you guys have traveled. Make more music, Oddisea.
