Chris Deaner (+/- {plus/minus}) and Karl Lundin (Mandible) create pop songs with just drums, percussion, a bit of chanting and some processing and editing. Instead of some crazy drum jam, these are carefully constructed drum pieces. It's fun to listen to, plus other groups (the Rosebuds, +/-, Mates of State) will be creating new songs with these beats as well. Chris and Karl co-produced with Jim Eno (of Spoon) at his Public Hi-Fi studio, and the basic tracks were done by Michael Crow (of Grand Champeen) at Industrial Oaks. Mastered by Jeff Lipton at Peerless. (, -LC
