Formerly at the center of Peephole, Kent Odessa is one of the dozen or so people that I'm hoping will be bringing the phenomenon-typically-known-as-chillwave back around the bend to something a bit more uptempo, after a few years of being the year round summer whatever (I'm not complaining, though). Whatever the case, whether moving back to Detroit played any part in it or not, the lead single for his upcoming solo-debut is an energetic soul anthem, with a tremendous low-key groove and synth accents.
MP3 :: Kent Odessa - Getaway
Though plans are still tentative, it looks like Odessa's going to be self-releasing the album in October. In the meantime, he's got a couple more tracks for us at his soundcloud.
