The Drums. The Drums. The Drums. I will not forget this band. Stylized and elegant in performance and sound, I was pleasantly shocked by their set the other week at Neumos. You would think they were a British band and not from Brooklyn (yes, check their MySpace and see their influences: Orange Juice, the Smiths, Joy Division) – and each band member focused a very intense personality in his own space. Singer Jonathan Pierce capered and swept along the stage, swinging his mic cord, and guitarist Jacob Graham bowed, danced and played much like a ballet dancer. Right on. I highly recommend their CD, the Drums. There was not misstep on the set list.
