OM Announce New Album ‘Advaitic Songs’ To Be Released By Drag City In July

OM by Jason Roeder

OM have announced the follow up to 2009’s God is Good, a five song suite entitled Advaitic Songs, will be issued via Drag City on July 23rd 2012. Where God is Good was the first step in a more ornate and sophisticated direction for OM, Advaitic Songs achieves a level of composition that would’ve been impossible to foresee.

Om 'Advaitic Songs' Artwork

Advaitic Songs maintains the singularity of purpose that informs the core sound of OM, yet every element reaches further than before. Whatever drone-doom genre that had been hoisted on the duo in years past has been decimated by the sheer imagination, expansive quality, and meticulously detailed arrangements of this new album. For a band that has continually followed its own course, and stood alone in its sound and approach, Advaitic Songs for certain, is the band’s most focused, progressive document.
