“One of the most exciting drummers I’ve seen recently in any kind of music” – New York Times
Sensational drummer and musical polyglot, Greg Fox, marks the release of new solo album, The Gradual Progression, out this week on RVNG Intl.
Known for his genre-hopping work with Zs, Liturgy and Guardian Alien, as well as stints with Ben Frost and Colin Stetson, Fox's new album takes his trademark viruoisty and elevates it further with a thrilling mix of electronics, psychedelia, krautrock and a Don Cherry-esque spirituality honed with an exacting attention to detail.
"Good drummers aren’t uncommon. Great ones are. We still mourn Keith Moon of the Who and John Bonham of Led Zeppelin as the jolly bashers of modernity. Here comes the future, they seemed to be telling us with their sensational ka-blammo. Together, they popularized the notion that, in rock-and-roll, a drummer’s unsolemn duty is to establish a sense of time while happily smashing it to bits. Greg Fox reactivates that idea for the Information Age." – Washington Post
