New Hip-Hop Albums & Videos: Oddisee, Apathy, Craig G, Homeboy Sandman, Rob Kelly + Analog Brothers reissue

Below is the Ryan Calavano directed music video for the new Oddisee track "Brea" from the artist's brand new album The Odd Tape that arrived into Amoeba this week in CD and vinyl versions: regular LP and  Deluxe LP. The 55 minute, twelve track album from the renowned Brooklyn based, Maryland hip-hop artist was released by Mello Music Group yesterday. A day earlier the video, that appears below along with other new videos, was published by director Calavano who described the Oddisee accompanying visual as a "tribute to the unseen soul......a companion piece to living."

This latest Oddisee album that's technically a mixtape comes from the multi-talented emcee and producer who is both a solo artist and member of the hip-hop trio Diamond District. It is his follow up to 2015's The Good Fight. Unlike that last album, The Odd Tape is an all instrumental outing. Also yesterday Mello Music released Oddisee's seven-track EP Alwasta that he had originally posted for free online a few months back.

Watch Lucius Perform Live at Amoeba Hollywood

Lucius Live at Amoeba Hollywood

Brooklyn indie pop band Lucius stopped by Amoeba Hollywood this past March for a performance featuring sweetly lilting harmonies, soulful country rock guitar and sparse, but effective percussion. Immediately recognizable by their ultra fashionable identical style, frontwomen Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig commanded the stage with a quiet intensity, letting their well-crafted melodies do the talking Lucius Good Grief Amoeba Musicwhile drummer Dan Molad kept time and guitar players Peter Lalish and Andrew Burri contributed some light Americana vibes.

The day after their set, the band's third full-length, Good Grief, came out via Mom + Pop Music, so this was an exciting moment for fans looking forward to new material. A rapt crowd gathered for doo wop-inspired set opener "Turn It Around" before the group slowed things down with the minimalist, moving "Go Home." Lucius closed out their set with "Dusty Trails," a low-key heartbreaker about lost chances and going home. Check out the full performance in the video below.
