Boomkat Product Review:
‘Ode Music’ was originally released in 2000 and is the soundtrack to Kelly Reichardt's film of the same name. It’s not the only soundtrack Will Oldham has managed to pull out of the bag, indeed ‘Seafarers Music’ was another exploration into the world of cinema – but ‘Ode Music’s collection of haunting Americana instrumentals works just as well without the images to accompany it. Using acoustic guitar and organ Oldham plays repeating patterns and pleasing sentimental hooks to evoke certain emotions across what I would imagine is the length of the film. It’s unsurprising then just how visual the music is, I don’t know the film which it came from but I’m imagining the great American countryside, lakes, campfires, bears maybe – it’s an evocative ride. It’s odd that Oldham has never attempted anything quite so simple since he clearly has quite a grasp of this beautiful, minimal, lo-fi production style. Just check ‘Ode #4’s haunting guitar and synthesizer poem and be lulled into a state of reflective relaxation. A quite gorgeous and I must say unexpected album from one of the world’s most consistently interesting musicians.
