New music w/ cocktail drum

The band Needle, who plays in this website's player, has a new album - actually an EP - out. It's called Saint Timothy's and uses a cocktail drum set. It's recorded very clearly and you can hear the cocktail drum very well. The music is Needle's style of slowcore, very nicely done.

Hi,

They sound like the Cowboy Junkies ... but without the guitar parts.

Very similar, but I couldn't imagine the Cowboy Junkies without the guitars.

Hi Robert,

Yes, I'd love to play some Cowboy Junkies on my cocktail kit sometime with a live band. The simple and mezmorizing beats would be perfect. I play at a lot of churches but I end up having to do all kinds of stuff with the cocktail kit that is really meant for a standard set up.

Yes - I think that would sound entrancing. Simple beats and accompaniments are hard to do, but when they fit, come together so to speak, the music is on a level above the ordinary. The cocktail drum can make that a good possibility when you play it with a good group.
