It’s been almost five years since Tomahawk released their psychedelic, Native American-themed Anonymous album; a left-field, love-it–or-loathe-it experiment that didn’t quite work. This time round the band, made up of The Jesus Lizard’s Duane Denison, Helmet’s John Stanier, Trevor Dunn of Mr. Bungle and of course Mr. Mike Patton, have opted for a straight up classy rock album.
Oddfellows is great. Heavy, catchy, dark and addictive; occasionally radio friendly- more occasionally not, and just another quality album to add to the Patton cannon. The various twists, turns and nuances mean repeated listens are required to fully digest and appreciate what’s on offer.
