Ohtis: Downtown Your Heart
The scatterbrained, deconstructionist folk-rock created by Ohtis is a study in contrasts. Crisp, serene strings and soothing vocal melodies flank intense layers of instrumentation and harmony, like a more deliberate and less overdriven Neutral Milk Hotel, or Frank Zappa with a little bit longer attention span. The songs on the Normal, Illinois, band’s album, If This Country Had a Heart, That’s Where I Was Born, display a rare combination of concise premeditation and occasional madness.
