The Time on the Clock: EP 604
“When we party in the garden, we know we all rock.” During 14 North Cedgwick’s lengthy post-production schedule, OttO Vector sketched much of what would eventually be known as EP 604. Because the timelines of both projects overlapped in a pretzeled fashion, the band viewed EP 604 as both an extension of and companion to Cedgwick’s musical themes and soundscapes.
Returning to the studio with producer Chuck Alkazian, OttO Vector’s adventure was further sweetened by a pair of unexpected guest musicians. The esteemed Cheyenne Goff (Half Light Music, Bliss 66) provided guest vocals on Bright Side, and violinist Sonia Lee (Three Tenors, Rod Stewart, Paul McCartney, etc.) lent her graceful touch to Monday Morning.
The super-smooth production wrapped in mid September, and EP 604 was released at The Magic Bag on November 4th, 2011.
…but why does the band constantly reference the number “604?” That’s a story for another day…
EP 604 spawned a pair of videos, each showing a completely different side of the band. A spiritual companion to 2010’s Charlie Mix, the Sean Babas directed/produced Bright Side was shot in Detroit’s Packard Plant and Foran’s Grand Trunk Pub on October 9th, 2011. With a slightly different flair, Better Left Unsaid (directed by Modok in August 2012) served as a visual love letter to OttO’s earliest major influences: 8bit video games and Detroit.
