A gang of artists who play rhythm in various bands – Pearl Jam’s Matt Cameron, Sleater-Kinney/Wild Flag’s Janet Weiss, and Zach Hill of Hella and Death Grips fame – are releasing a beats-only collaborative LP as Drumgasm, titled ‘Drumgasm’. Basically, it’s all drums, all the time.

Which isn’t to say it’s always a flood of noisy white noise, oh no. An intro to it c/o Jackpot Records, the label releasing Cameron et al’s drum-tacular on a tba date in the future, claims it’s “deeply calming”, and a “Niagara Falls of sound” that’s “always moving, flowing” to reveal the intricacies of the band’s “action/reaction, call and response, time games, shifting levels of synchronization and de-synchronization, repetition and pattern”.
