Odds are defiantly joyful in new track “Staring at a Blank Page” from 7th LP, Crash the Time Machine, out now
Aug 24, 2023
Crash the Time Machine is a vibrant painting of struggle and the community that both feeds it and transcends it. The band goes in new and exciting musical directions while retaining the dark ironic signature that has earned them a place in the hearts of listeners for over three decades.
The band enlisted co-producer Steven Page. A good friend of the band since early 1990s, Page and Northey have remained frequent musical collaborators; Craig is a member of the Steven Page Trio, while Page is no stranger to sitting in with the Odds and employing them in his recordings. After collating their various musical explorations into a unified whole, Page and the Odds handed the whole thing to trusted mix engineer Paul Forgues, and the end result is a cohesive blend that redefines Odds music for 2023.
Page isn’t the Odds’ only musical friend helping out on Crash the Time Machine. The striking cover illustration comes courtesy of Rob Baker, a frequent musical collaborator and founding member of The Tragically Hip.
The urgent need for community, in what could best be described as “interesting times,” is a running theme on Crash the Time Machine. Odds embrace the awesome power of Now, while celebrating the friends we make along the way.
