jameson williams’ solo output is about as far removed from the the thrash and technical death metal bands he cut his teeth on in the pacific northwest. as lostodyssey, the eugene-based musician crafts cinematic electronic soundscapes that are bucolic and meditative to the nth degree.
on june 22nd, williams will release his third extended play, the first with seattle’s hush hush records, dont mind me. its five cavernous, downtempo tracks swirl with intricate production and more prominent vocal treatments, ones that particularly excel at melding themselves into already-rich, substantive textures. case in point is closing number “good god,” its static field recordings dissolving into a lush dreamscape populated by manipulations of the titular phrase, williams marveling at his auditory surroundings.
taken with the rest of dont mind me, “good god” is a finale full of catharsis, a wide-open expanse of pastoral impressions that nestle comfortably in ear canals. the track is premiering today, right here on the dimestore; listen to “good god” below.
