The multi-talented drummer for Kneebody, Nate Wood, (whose work on Dan Tepfer’s new album, Eleven Cages, I have been gushing about and will do so here at the site soon) has been releasing videos the last few months under the moniker fOUR. He’s composing songs to play multiple instruments on his own, driven mainly through the midi capabilities in the bass, with no overdubs or pre-recorded backing tracks. They’re one shot bits of brilliance, each one going equally as hard. Check out the latest song, “sides”, after the jump.
Instruments used: Gretsch USA Custom drums with Istanbul Agop Cymbals
Moollon P Classic Bass
Make Noise 0-Coast
Dark Glass Vintage Deluxe Distortion
