Odonis Odonis signs to FatCat & FREE download ‘Mr Smith’


Tornoto’s Odonis Odonis have signed to FatCat: as a taster of their work they’ve released ‘Mr. Smith’ video + download @Rcrdlbl, Palmist 12″. Download ‘Mr Smith’ below.

Originally a solo project for prolific songwriter/ bandleader Dean Tzenos, Odonis Odonis has only recently become a live band project, playing their first live shows in May and picking up heat as one of the buzz bands of Toronto’s NXNE festival.

Compiled from a wealth of material written and home-recorded between January 2009 and September 2010, Dean recorded virtually all of forthcoming debut album ‘Hollandaze’ – a grimy, gum-splattered ménage of surf-gaze, punk and lo-fi – alone in a tiny home studio, writing two or three songs a day.

Signing to FatCat last month, Odonis Odonis’ first release came in May with an ultra-limited edition 7″ single – ‘Busted Lip’ on Canadian label We Are Busy Bodies, followed swiftly in July by four tracks on a split 12″ (shared with Deerhunter side project, Lotus Plaza) on FatCat’s new sister label, Palmist.
