Originally from Bloomington, Indiana, Odawas recently relocated from Chicago to Berkeley and we’re excited to now have them as a Bay Area band. The duo of Isaac Edwards and Michael Tapscott have released four albums, including 2009’s The Blue Depths (Jagjaguwar). It’s a great album mixing ambient synths and sweeping rock.

Check out the video and mp3 for “Harmless Lover’s Discourse” below:

Odawas are playing a free show at Amoeba SF on Tuesday, April 21st at 6pm. They’re also performing at the Great American Music Hall on Saturday, April 25th with Autolux, Mini Mansions, and DJ Miles (Live 105).

The band posted a note on their web site about the Amoeba show:

For this show we have put together a special CD-r that we will be giving away at this show. It is a limited edition (of 50 copies) of our first album “Vitamin City” which has been out of print for about 4 years. First come, first serve, so don’t miss out if you can!!! After these are gone, we will make the full album available for free download here on our website.
