Blue Odeur is the project of Montreal-based producer and singer lbardsley. Her music is a personal vision of idm music with experimental rhythms, dynamic and distorted melodies, lysergic trip-hop textures and dark vibes. Today we have the pleasure to premiere her new EP titled Inspector Knife which is out today.
According to the press release, Inspector Knife is a series of nights out and the days after spent walking home. It spoons you when you’re sleeping, but will leave before you’re awake. The tracks act as a viscous fluid, disobeying expectations to give you a newfound smoothness.
“Veered” accompanies you to a laundromat and listens to you complain about change. “Just 2 Feel It” reminds you to curb your judgements and let your feelings go. “ILOVEYOU” tackles lust into the alleyway and gives it a piece of my mind. “Old Alien” is a porn version of jeeper’s creepers scored by prodigy. The last track, “I’ve Been”, is a confession, and through confessing, a letting go.
To sum it up? Think polyamory meets polyrhythms in a dive bar while The Knife and Todd Terje take turns circuit bending the jukebox.
