Dive into the immersive world of Corduroi’s Oceanarium where mermaids, colorful corals and dolphins come to life on this lush soundscape. Corduroi (aka Cody Wilson) traverses the sonic depths of exotica, hip-hop, and jazz-funk on his debut LP, creating a summertime soundtrack that’s easygoing and experimental.
Gamer sound effects and shiny textures flash back to video games, like Super Mario Brothers, and dodging venomous jellyfish and other mysterious creatures to save the world. Like a video game, each song takes the listener deeper into the quixotic world of Corduroi’s Oceanarium.
On debut track “Overboard,” premiering exclusively on Sound Dessert, layered samples add rich texture to this glossy single – a pop of a soda can, breaking waves on the shore, seagulls squawking and voices echoing.
Welcome to the original augmented reality – your imagination. Oceanarium drops April 20th, and is available for Vinyl preorder, via Raw Paw Records.
