Odiorne's dreamy psych pop doesn't so much soar as float on melancholy, lilting guitar and softly hued keyboard washes. Neither as lush as the Flaming Lips' orchestral pop nor as drizzly and gray as the work of British counterparts South or British Sea Power, the richly layered tracks of Heavy Wish, Odiorne's debut LP, have a light, deft touch despite their grandeur.

Odiorne began as a side project of former Mercury Rev drummer Jimy Chambers. Chambers proves a proficient vocalist and guitarist, though the beauty of Heavy Wish lies mainly in the cinematic shimmer and flow of the arrangements.
