Odetta Hartman/Let’s Eat Grandma at Empty Bottle
September 6 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm$12 – $15
Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth were just 17 when LET’S EAT GRANDMA released their debut I, Gemini. Childhood friends who grew up writing songs that, over time, emerged into something quite magical. Call it experimental sludge pop, bubblegum-psych rock, it was a marriage of magnificence and makeshift, with synths, saxophones, clapping games, recorders, and secured them sold out shows, critical acclaim, a spellbinding turn on Jools Holland; their audience drawn to the strange beauty of their music, to something compelling and otherworldly. Two years, on and LET’S EAT GRANDMA continue their effortless stroll to well deserved success. They are the sound of two young musicians united afresh, bringing with them their individual loves, passions, experiences. Charged with wit and joy and tenderness, this is the moment when everything changes.
With a heart – stopping voice & wide – ranging instrumental talent, ODETTA HARTMAN carries cowboy soul into an era where country can clash with computers, and bluegrass isn’t afraid of bass. Her debut LP 222 – an experimental, bedroom-produced hybrid of folk, musique concrète and psychedelia – was released on Northern Spy Records in 2015 to critical acclaim. Alongside her partner, sound artist & radio producer Jack Inslee, ODETTA continues to explore the sonic vernacular created by their uncanny collaboration: badass banjos, detuned violins, field recordings, superstitious soundscapes, and vocal stylings ranging from sensual to spooky. A new album, Old Rockhounds Never Die, is slated for release on Northern Spy Records / Memphis Industries on August 10, 2018.
