Song #1 - High & Tight

We cranked up the drums (and the tempo) to record this power pop barnburner.  With driving 8th notes on the kick and a mix of open hi hats and bashing crash cymbals, each chorus builds upon itself until reaching the final outro.  The drumming on this track lives somewhere between The Foo Fighters, Fountains of Wayne and Weezer.

Song #2 - Tribal Folk
Using "the big" room at The Loop Loft, we busted out the timpani mallets and put our tom toms to work.  Expansive, cinematic drums and crescendoing cymbal swells evoke the stylings of Arcade Funeral, Gotye and early Radiohead.

Arrangement Notes:
Intro - 8 Bars
Verse 1 - 8 Bars
Chorus 1 - 8 Bars
Verse 2 - 8 Bars
Chorus 2 - 8 Bars
Bridge - 10 Bars (w/ 4 bar build)
Chorus/Outro - 16 Bars
83 BPM


Song #3 - Straight Indie Pop
Tracked on a Gretsch USA Custom drum kit and through an array of vintage preamps, this song feels as warm and natural as it sounds.  With a focus on a solid backbeat (and no fancy drum-off fills) and some subtle percussion throughout, this multitrack drum session is 100% indie rock ready.  File this one under Spoon, The Pixies and Wilco.
