"Your Friends are Callin’ You Baby Stay with Me Instead"

As I mentioned yesterday, Odesza dropped their new A Moment Apart album yesterday. Shortly after mentally ripping off the packaging, I flew through snippets of all the tracks I hadn't heard with interesting cameos. On the top of that list was Across the Room with vocals from living soul legend Leon Bridges.

I'm still wrapping my mind around the blend of styles since it's much more gospel or take 'em to church sounding than what you'd normally hear from Odesza, but that's not at all a bad thing. Leon's vocals and the quiet beat create a chill, jazzy vibe. Don't get it twisted though, Odesza found a way to put their stamp on the track with a high-pitched gospel vocal sample adding to the crescendo of energy following Leon's verses. It along with La Cuidad are my new favorites after a few listens to the new album. Add those to the multitude of already awesome singles and there's plenty of potential for 2017 album of the year consideration...#AMomentApart
