Fasman’s Finds – Odunsi

Fasman’s Finds is our column from Rebecca Fasman (intrepid record nerd, DJ, and curator at the Kinsey Institute) in which she shares what she’s listening to and why. 

Now that it’s spring, I want to listen to music that’s lighter, that makes me move, that makes me want to be outside, that reminds me of having a body and being part of larger ecosystems. I’ve been listening to Everything You Heard Is True by Odunsi (The Engine). It’s a synth-y, percussive, spacey RnB album and I can’t get enough of it right now. 

Odunsi is really good at creating space on a track – some of the percussive elements sound like breath (you can hear it clearly in Shuga Rush but really it’s throughout the whole album), and there’s welcome space between the exhalations. In a season of rebirth and rediscovery, it’s refreshing for breath and the body to be so present on an album.
