Elephant Graveyard Reviews!

Posted On October 6, 2010 by otem rellik

Elephant Graveyard is getting some great reviews! Here are some of the nice things people are saying.

You can just taste the blood, sweat and tears when listening to Otem Rellik’s new album, Elephant Graveyard. Finely tuned and long awaited, this indie Hip-Hop album by Toby Hendricks drips with emotion. The album’s mood reminds one a bit of Radiohead – emotional and depressing, but very beautiful.
– The Scene Magazine

In the day of complete saturation of musical styles, it is extremely refreshing to listen to and review artists such as Otem Rellik, who banishes all the rules and does what comes naturally – makes incredibly original music.
– Colorado Music Buzz

These Otem Rellik songs aren’t hip-hop so much as they are experiments in what pop songs of the future might sound like now, as distinct genres of music cross-pollinate and influence one another to produce fascinating hybrids.
– Denver Westword

Honestly, Toby Hendricks, the singular man behind Otem Rellik, may be brilliant. In addition to engineering instruments, he paints, writes poetry, and brings an artistry to his music that cannot be contained. Sure, he rhymes like an MC, over strong beats, but it would be shortsighted and limiting to call this hip-hop. His songs move both body and soul, and the music he produces is mournful and often beautiful, like the best indie rock.

New Painting

Posted On October 3, 2010 by otem rellik

Recently I’ve been feeling the itch to do some visual art stuff so I decided to start a new painting. As I was out of canvas and am a very cheap person, I decided to paint over an old piece that I was never of. I took some progress photos for posterity.
