Oddisee Just Dropped A Surprise Free EP + Announces Tour w/ Live Band

It’s been a minute since we caught up with DMV do-it-all, Oddisee. His 2015 album, The Good Fight, while one of the year’s best, was also one of the year’s most slept-on outings, feeding the communal hunger for lush, breakneck organix and finely-tuned wordplay. And while many of us are still burning through The Good Fight, Oddisee just made it all-too-clear that this year you’ll remember his name amongst the current crop of superlative MCs and producers, releasing the free surprise EP, Alwasta, for the heads to soak up. With seven tracks of warbled and wonderful notes, Oddisee enthusiasts and novices alike will take heed with this mighty resurgence.

You can stream Alwasta down below for the righteously low price of free ninety-nine, just be sure to pick up your copy via Bandcamp today and scroll down to peep his freshly-announced slate of tour dates for this spring and summer.
