O. - WeirdOs

Records of the Month

O. - WeirdOs

We sure do love it when a duo make a lot of noise, but this pair don’t just make a noise, they make the entire room undulate and quiver.

The economically named “O.” are the London-based duo of baritone saxophonist Joe Henwood and drummer Tash Keary. Their debut LP - WeirdOs - is a raucous and high-octane set of instrumental bangers, rooted in jazz but also bringing in bass culture tones and increasingly propulsive experimentalism.

Released on the esteemed Speedy Wunderground, the album was also produced by SW main-man Dan Carey and aims to replicate the feeling of being at one of their gigs. We had the distinction of welcoming them to town for a Sea Change live show a while back and can testify it was gloriously intense and this wonderful LP does indeed capture that jacked up and explosive experience.

Albums that hop through genres can often discombobulate as much as impress, but besides the sheer all-out fury of their music, perhaps the duo’s greatest asset is the ability to flow through jungle, dance, jazz and doom metal with such cohesion and really owning their sound.

“The album name is inspired by people coming up to us after shows and saying, ‘this feels like music for weirdos,’” Keary explains. “We listen and jam to lots of different styles of music and it all filters through naturally in our sound – we’re just expressing ourselves.”

Loud, proud, euphoric and full-body cathartic, WeirdOs will unlock your inner weirdo.
