Trouble is the brand-new dispatch from the assorted output of Kevin Drumm and sits as one of the quietest in his entire catalog. A single continuous 54-minute excursion into the netherworld of the audio spectrum, Trouble is neither ambient nor drone, but a more complex investigation into the deep recesses of sound. One which discreetly works itself into the mind of a listener willing to invest in the path laid out in this extremely subtle, beautiful and exceptional release. Recorded in winter, 2013-2014 at Frostbite, Chicago, IL. Mastered by Russell Haswell.
"Despite Drumm's noisy reputation, his music can be overwhelmingly sensual even at its loudest. Sheer Hellish Miasma's "Hitting the Pavement", for instance, is a full-body rubdown of distortion—part airplane engine, part power sander, yet still, above all, a welcoming embrace. And that goes a thousand-fold for the sublime Trouble, an album that invites you to dive into its clutches with the promise of never hitting bottom. The noise floor is a very, very long way down."
