An album featuring acoustic drums as the primary instrument that manages to be both impressive and complex without being indulgent or flashy. Mason is a drummer who knows how to lend his style to bring out the fullness of a composition and not distract from it. I love it!
Favorite track: Abacus.
This minimalistic fusion of organic live drums and electronic elements is refreshingly creative and original. You really feel the expression of the artist through his drumming, but also through his composition that employs catchy riffs and melodic hooks while bending the rules with form and style.
Favorite track: Crusoe.
