OSO Goodhue EP Release
with Camp Dark and DEM YUUT (DJ set)
March 1, 2016 at Icehouse Mpls
10pm show / $6 / 21+
The solo project of Minneapolis-based musician Chris Williams (Warehouse Eyes), OSO debuts its existence with an EP release this Tuesday night. Goodhue is comprised of five songs that, as Williams describes, constitute the moment when an artist’s “voice starts to crystallize.” He spent a month alone at the Anderson Center in Red Wing, Minnesota with his Casiotone keyboard, and the result is not only OSO’s Goodhue EP, but Williams’ transformation into the most confident and capable version of himself yet.
“So why fight it?” Williams questions, on “Head In The Clouds.” Surely he has given into the best of guilty pleasures: making music that’s just as fun to play as it is to listen to, and that as the musician, you can be quite proud of having created. It’s a great moment to “see my reflection and never run away,” as he mentions in “Tired of the Night.” In Goodhue, Williams embraces his various musical talents, hones them, and constructs a release that is only the beginning of both OSO and his burgeoning career.
