Album Notes
Here is a review from Artist Direct website..

Flavoring their respective instruments with liberal amounts of electronic effects, loops, and delays, the New York City trio Drums & Tuba creates an instrumental palette of sounds that includes funk, fusion, rock, ambient, and other modern dance strains. As on previous works, the group in no way limits itself to traditional styles of arrangement.

Drummer Tony Nozero sets up the moody, whirling "Topolino" with looped rim shots that sound vaguely North African. Brian Wolff lays gentle tuba and trumpet over top, yielding the set's finest and most serene composition. Guitarist Neal McKeeby shines on "The Sauce Maker," playing a simple, yet effective slide melody over his own chords that comes off as a sort of post-rock version of Santo & Johnny's "Sleepwalk."

The group can riff on James Brown and Morcheeba with equal ease. A light-handed production by vocal supporter Ani DiFranco and Andrew "Goat Boy" Gilchrist ensures that Vinyl Killer's charms and oddities shine through clearly. ~ John Duffy, All Music Guide

Good, Very Good
This is an excellent CD. There is tons of variety, and as a tuba player I will say that the tuba playing is superb. The percussion is not bad either, and breaks out of rock cliches. The guitarist manages to be technically compelling without dominating the album. By far the best song on this CD is No Accomodation for Buffalo. That song, even more than the rest of the album, displays amazing chops and infinite danceability.


Good Listen
Much variety, nice to play completely through - would have liked more tuba volume on some of mixes - jazz-funk is best!

Encoded Phatness
Protoplasms tactile and wet with bulky fonk bulbs stimulate the cross genre receptor cells and honk heavy to scare up the sasqach of jazzonia.

What a great cd
I really like this cd, the instrumentals make me wanna get up and dance, but at the same time I can listen to it while doing work and not get distracted. Fantastic beats and rhythms!
