Devil Met Contention live on “Hear Here Presents” Music Series

Screenshot 2016-01-19 22.00.53

Back in November of 2015 DMC was invited to take part in a live loft recording series called Hear Here Presents. It was a blast and you can hear folks from the crew and other bands that took part in the evening’s sessions.  I played this show all hopped up on flu medicine but at least my hair looked good!

From a gear perspective, I was trying out some new Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple drums (snare and floor tom) along with a Taye Studio Birch kick with the Woodshed Percussion logo head. Those sick 16″ hihats are Impression Dark series. So slinky good! And don’t forget the cool Big Fat Snare drum snare-bourine to get that fat 70s thump on the third track.

Summertime!

OUT NOW – the new Nineteen Thirteen single “Summertime.” The track centers around an organ recording of Janet’s grandma from back in the 1960’s, augmented with our normal Cello/Drums/Percussion plus some special contributors. On bass, we have the Grammy award winning bassist Rob Wasserman and on vocal the lovely Monia. A full length release is scheduled for Fall  2015.
