It's not unusual to find a band that tries to pull off a broad range of styles. The ones that make it work, let alone the ones that master multiple techniques, are quite the rare breed.

New York based sextet O'Death mixes folk, indie, alt-country, and Americana into a blend that sounds as if it hails from a place closer to the Ozarks than the city that never sleeps.

If you've lent an ear to the band's previous efforts, you may have heard a punkier, rootier side of O'Death. Vocalist Greg Jamie has become known for going totally nuts during performances, evoking an image of a stark raving mad, possessed by a banshee, fiery eyed baptist preacher, seeking in vain to reach out to sinners in the hands of an angry god.

Expect less of that on Outside. The new LP is a much quieter, more intimate and more personal experience. It's a very moody album; it paints a portrait of despair, discontent, and the inevitably of death.

The lyrics on this album on the whole are nothing short of fantastic. The lead single, "Bugs," reflects on how fast life passes by, and how it can be a struggle to make the most of it. "Alamar" tells of a man who lost his lover, and his hope of one day meeting her again in the next lifetime.

Other tracks are more blunt in their imagery. "Look at the Sun" sees the speaker caught in nightmare in which he is buried alive. You can sense the panic as describes the struggle to breathe, with the dirt covering his lungs. "Ghost Head" features even more sinister imagery, describing blood that is still fresh on the narrator's hands.

"Don't Come Back" is a nice little pensive instrumental, impressively demonstrating that the band doesn't even need lyrics to be able to set a mood.

First off, I disagree with the early review, why would one consider their previous records a novelty? Head Home for example, is a gorgeous bluegrass/punk masterpiece, and one shouldn't overly generalize the country genre. As for Outside, it's mellower, darker and a great (slight) evolution of their sound.

I just picked this up today and I have to say that I am a huge fan of their previous 2 albums but this one completely floored me. Their first two sounded definitely more punk-bluegrass, as this one sounded way less raw and spontaneous but more thought out and emphases was focused more on the composition of how the instruments were to compliment each other. It's dark, it's eerie but at the same time it packs a hard punch. I wouldn't say this album is quieter because it's definitely more atmospheric and grand in it's sound, maybe because the band had more money to help produce the album but on the way home from picking this gem up I was listening to "Look at the Sun" and finding myself headbanging and yelling "yell yeah!!!" as loud as I could if that says anything at all. All the tracks are super consistent and don't lead you to believe there was any filler put into it. Some tracks that stood out to me were "Ghost Head" (turn it up while listening) "Alamar" and "Bugs". But in all seriousness, Outside is like a bluegrass Opeth in is progressiveness, range and smartness of it's music. And because this is an evolution in their sound, I can't wait to hear what they have in-store for us next.
