Today’s album pick: Dynamics by Secret Drum Band

Secret Drum Band's Dynamics

This is another Bandcamp win, Secret Drum Band‘s Dynamics. Based in Portland, Oregon the band describes the album thusly: “Dynamics sees composers Lisa Schonberg, Allan Wilson, and Heather Treadway delving headway into creating living, breathing soundscapes, rich in rhythmic textures. Driven by five drummers, each song also employs an array of affected vocals, guitar, and synthesizers from noise musicians, often mimicking sounds found in nature.”

I’m on my third or fourth listen to the album, and I’m still finding new things to enjoy. If a hard, driving beat and textured sounds appeal to you, you really should give it a listen or two.
