Drums & Tuba – “Battles Ole ” – [Righteous Babe Records]

Somewhere around the 7th release from this trio, this time bringing material infused with a decidedly dark mood. They’ve always been good at bashing out noisy funk rock, and this CD is no exception. Big, loosely tight drumming, pumping tuba grooves on the bottom, power guitar work, Spaceheads-style processing and looping, maybe a sample or two in the mix. There are many intriguing, unidentifiable sounds popping in and out. I can’t say that I remember D&T having much in the way of vocals before, but they have now gone heavily in that direction, with only one of the six tracks here being instrumental. The dark lyrics ponder death, disconnection, and such? I gotta say, though, I like Track 4, the instrumental one, best.
