Denitia Odigie 

Brick House

Brick House
If it seems like Denitia Odigie hasn’t been much around lately, that’s because she went off to entertain New Yorkers for a while at Googies Lounge, the smaller listening room above the big Living Room rock club. However she might’ve tinkered with her music while she was away, she’s kept at least one thing the same: EPs are still her format of choice. They—not full-length albums—are what she’s been recording all along, and she’s got a brand new one out titled Brick by Brick. Like Odigie’s last one, Contrast, it works a warm acoustic palette and a soul pulse. Above the swaying grooves, though, her melodies never settle into an intuitive soul-style flow, instead spraying emotion outside such well-trod routes. But her lyrics take direct aim. Case in point: “Don’t be such a heartbreaker / It’s not sexy anymore.”
