Indie Rock Drums

Where the hell have I been? Confined to the sweatshop of drum beats (aka The Loop Loft), producing this fine collection of drum noises and rhythms.. which is finally out today! Check it:

Via The Loop Loft:

We get it. You’re an indie artist and you’re not looking for over-produced drum loops that sound like outtakes from a 1987 Bon Jovi session. You’ll never book a show in Brooklyn with that kind of schlock on your tracks. This is exactly why we’ve created our latest collection, “Indie Rock Drums Vol 1“.

To accurately produce the sound and feel of these loops, we immersed ourselves into the indie rock lifestyle for an entire month, living, breathing and drinking in the $3,500 a month gutters of Williamsburg. We grew beards and then trimmed them into ironic mustaches. We rolled our own cigarettes. We rode fixies instead of taking cabs. We bathed ourselves in PBR. We had a Monday night residency at Pianos. We even acquired a trust fund so that we could spend our days hanging out in coffee shops, getting into heated debates about Pavement, and if they were better or worse after they kicked Gary Young out of the band.

We lived it… and now you can download it in all of its digital glory. Dirty but danceable DFA-approved beats, anthemic Arcade Fire-esque pounding, low-fi Strokes-ish uptempo rock, folkish Bon Ivery brushes… it’s all here. Each collection of grooves contains a variety of fills as well as individually sampled drums and cymbals, so you can easily program your own beats with the exact same sounds from the loop sessions. The sound and feel of Indie Rock Drums is now at your fingertips.

Dipster

Loop #113

Dipster. A groove with origins stemming from deep inside the PBR-soaked clubs of Williamsburg. On the surface, it may sound like a rather straight ahead dance/rock beat, but it is actually a sonic melting pot of culture; Ironic mustaches, American Apparel, trust funds, Vice, David Fridmann. They all, in one way or another, contribute to the dipster DNA. So, what are you waiting for? Download this loop, load it up in Logic, set up some mics in your bathroom, and record a song that pitchfork will approve of.
