The debut onslaught from Toronto-based Odonis Odonis - a new project from former Ten Kens member Dean Tzenos - Hollandaze is a grimy, gum-splattered ménage of surf-gaze, punk and lo-fi, cut from twanging reverb & fuzz heavy guitars, thick, driving bass-and-drum machines and overdriven Hammond organ.

Hollandaze, which compiles home recordings created over the last couple of years, is a collection of killer, hook-driven tunes hark back to the classic ‘80s sounds of The Jesus & Mary Chain, Pixies, Big Black and The Cure.

Tzenos recorded almost all of the material found on Hollan- daze in his tiny home studio, writing two or three songs a day. A new studio album, recorded with Colin Stewart of Black Mountain, will follow early in 2012.

Originally a solo project for the prolific Tzenos, Odonis Odonis has only recently become a live band, playing their first live shows in May and picking up heat as one of the buzz bands of Toronto’s NXNE festival.
