” pic to the extreme a really great, great piece of music – Vic Galloway, BBC ”
“The score was designed to sit almost imperceptibly in the film as a bed of sound which merged into the prison atmospheres. For the album, we wanted to expand from this to create something that held onto those flavours but that had a life of its own and this is the result. I think it has a strong sense of drama and sometimes is even quite scary, but is also very dreamy and evocative.” – David Mackenzie
“David and I share a good appetite for anarchic little collaborations, we’ve enjoyed a few over the years and so I was keen to take up his invitation to make a response to one of his compositions. I’m always compelled to find an opportunity for subversion so I threw a gentle glockenspiel into his dark disquiet.” – Ewen Bremner
The name comes from a t-shirt for an obscure rehab outfit found at a thrift store in Louisiana. Department Odd is also the home of Good Grace music publishing.
