Groove is in the part

Whether you’re a longterm fan or are only dis­cov­er­ing Nate Smith in re­cent times, once you know, you know. Fol­low­ing last year’s Kin­folk and this year’s TheFear­lessF­ly­ers (fea­tur­ing mem­bers of con­tem­po­rary funka­teers Vulf­peck) comes Pock­etChange.

If you’ve ever thought that other in­stru­ments only get in the way, this is a drums-only al­bum of Nate’s grooves. The 11 tracks twist and turn as Smith shuf­fles, did­dles and dis­places his way through imag­i­na­tive break­beat, funk, disco and more. There’s plenty of vari­a­tion in the sound too, from crisp and cracky to dead snare with trashy hi-hats. If you’ve ever wanted un­hin­dered ac­cess to Smith’s mas­ter­ful play­ing, this is your chance. (SW)
