DRUMS & TUBA GO MOSTLY APE ON NEW RELEASECreated: 07/02/12 Created: 7/2/2002
Also in stores on September 10 is Mostly Ape, the latest batch of eccentric instrumental mayhem from the NYC trio Drums & Tuba. The new record takes the already atmospheric sound of the band's past and arms it with groove-based, well-crafted song structures and slippery blips and bleeps. On top of Drums & Tuba's significant rock influence, you'll also hear strains of jazz, electronica, art rock, funk, garage, new wave and the faint echo of your highschool marching band. It's a multi-layered, surprisingly rich sound for a trio. It will also annoy the hell out of folks who organize their CD collection by genre. Mostly Ape is a rhythm-heavy, forward-thinking, wholly original musical document, and is the band's most accomplished effort yet.
