Drummers who get the most out of their drumkit:
‘Dry Bone Valley’ by Mastodon. If Brann Dailor were an architect, his designs would be like those Renaissance cathedrals - full of intricately interlinked pillars and arches but still with a sense of immense space. And he creates even more dimension by making use of his whole kit, the way builders add more interest by the use of different timbers.
‘Bloodbuzz Ohio’ by The National. Bryan Devendorf is the master of the thunderous power of toms.
‘Lifeline’ by The Tea Party. Wonderfully aware of the unique voices of each instrument.
‘Best of Both Worlds’ by Midnight Oil. How to make the drumkit pull its weight.
‘Grown ocean’ by Fleet Foxes. Finely woven and densely textured, like a richly detailed tapestry.
