Odd Nosdam Scores Skate Film
- Words: Jennifer Marston
David P. Madson (a.ka. Odd Nosdam) has made public his enthusiasm for skateboards with his latest offering. The S.F.-based producer teamed up with Element Skateboards to score the film This is My Element, and, as is usually the case with this hard-working lad, he's gone beyond the call of duty here. Madson tailored each track on the new album to fit the style of its respective skateboarder, which means he dabbled in everything from boom-bap to folk rock. Since tracks go by titles like "Trunk Bomb," "Wig Smasher," and "Ethereal Slap," we can make a relatively educated guess as to which styles match which songs.
The film itself is currently available, while the soundtrack will be released on March 10 through anticon.
