Give the Drummer Some More

Drummer/composers take center stage in music on this New Sounds. Hear from the talented Aaron Alexander and his double-drumming punk-klezmer project Midrash Mish Mosh, and sample the sometimes melodic and fluid music of Jim Black's AlasnoAxis. Plus, drummer Brian Blade teams up with guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel for an improvisational foray into the gorgeous, dynamic and restless spaces where loops against loops enable Blade to pick up a guitar as well. Not to be outdone, there's music from Savage Aural Hotbed, who have dubbed themselves the house band for the Orc Prom. Also, listen for the percussive kalimbas through blown-out amps and beatings on car parts of Konono #1, the middle-eastern rockingness of Raquy Danziger and more.
