Adam Betts Vinyl, CD & tapes by Adam Betts at Norman Records
Adam Betts loves percussive overload, whether from IDM-style overdriven drum machines or from actual live drums. For his debut solo album, he throws plenty of both into the mix for a frantic fractal of super-math rhythm explosions. Betts is the drummer for Three Trapped Tigers, so you know he knows what's up when it comes to super-technical hyper-funk. Colossal Squid is out on the Blood And Biscuits label.
Train journeys can be inspiring things, and it is this spirit of travel that the Rail Cables label admirably try to harness with their series of 4-way splits. Autumn Selection 2015 has delicate guitar from Orcer, minimal electronica from worriedaboutsatan, and solo projects from members of Gnod (Negra Branca) and Three Trapped Tigers (Adam Betts). What personnel! Each artist has filled a side of vinyl, making for a good and varied slab of music.
