Odyshape was the second album by the Raincoats, originally released on Rough Trade records in 1981. Now reissued by the band themselves and re-mastered from original masters. Odyshape was a radical departure from the band's first album, exploring different musical genres and featuring a diverse range of instruments, such as the Shruti box, Balophone, Shehnai and Kalimba. It's a very intimate recording, full of sounds they wisely never tried to recreate again, and vocal takes that are often inflected with a heart-crushing vulnerability.
