my favorite drumming in a song ever

Thursday, May 31st, 2012, 3:06 pm by Ben Salmon

I’m by no means an expert on the drums, or drummers, or drumming. But I do know that I love Jeremiah Green‘s drumming on this song like you would not believe.

I swear, every time those first few beats kick in, I turn into some kind of fake-air-drumming awkward octopus, even if other people can see me. I just can’t help it.

The song as a whole ain’t too shabby either. And the album … well, let’s save that for another post some time.

    Trans Am- Futureworld

      Ooh, that one is nice. I remember playing the heck out of Trans Am (and this song) in my previous radio life. Haven’t listened to them in a while…

    When I think of solid drum beats I always think of the ultimate ‘student of the drums’, DJ Shadow.

    Oh yeah, I sat down and copied this drum part when the record came out! And I still use it in sound checks to make sure my drums are where I want them!
