Voyage: Pocket Odyssey’s New Installment

Pocket Odyssey

Austin Alternative, Pocket Odyssey, released their new EP “Voyage” earlier this month. This comes to us just short of a year after they released “Life and Travels” last April.

You can definitely expect to hear the same Pocket Odyssey you heard in last years EP but with what I would call a more ‘introspective’ flavoring. The theme of the album reminds me a lot of the Saint Street track from Life and Travels but more expanded. This especially true of the October single “Man Overboard” that is also on the 4-track collection.

The only track that derives from the theme of the album in my opinion is “Bloodshot Hymn” which I could see as more of a bar/pub, sing-a-long anthem. I remember the band playing this song as an encore during their EP Release Party last year, it’s a track that the crowd seemed to know very well and were very excited to be a part of in concert.

Take a listen to their new EP recorded independently of any recognized studio or label below:
