Otis Fodder

Band of the Day! Today it is Otis Fodder. I first heard him on the awesome Two Zombies Later compilation album from Comfort Stand. Now he has a whole album of his material, also on Comfort Stand, called Music to Drive Cross-Country By which is available for download at Comfort Stand or the Internet Archive. You can also choose to stream it rather than download it.

It’s good trippy stuff, with some Negativeland style cutups, but also some good solid swinging space age, cocktail nation musicianship. I really dig this album and will be downloading all the stuff to print up covers and make it a “real album”. I recommend it, and will be checking out more from Otis. He’s from Seattle and has played in Portland while I was there, but I never knew about him. That’s my loss.
