Review: Neurotic Drum Band

Time Out Ratings :

<strong>Rating: </strong>4/5

The piano-house revival continues—and as long as we keep getting tracks of this caliber, we're totally cool with that. In "Robotic Hypnotic Adventure," NDB's DJ Ulysses and John Selway have unleashed a monster. The track is an example of why "keep it simple" is one of house's golden rules: An old-school beats-and-bass bedrock anchors a pounding four-chord keyboard pattern, building momentum via a few blips here and some gorgeous strings there, and ending in a swirling, acid-fried coda. The flip side slows the tempo to an "Absolute Body Control"--era DAF groove and features some android pick-up chitchat —certainly goofy, but great nonetheless.

Neurotic Drum Band plays the Wurst Record Release Party Sat 17.
