#73/100 – Tomas Barfod – Salton Sea

This is another one of those important albums, through Friends of Friends, that came out of the blue in the early 2010s and made a big impression. November Skies, my pick on Side C, was an early single. This album got a lot of play on Nerd Show and DEF CON Radio alike. It’s no surprise, when listening to the album intently, that you hear how Tomas’ drumming influence is present throughout. Most tracks are innately percussive, and I love it.

Oh, and I did get to meet Tomas at SXSW years ago after a performance of his. He was kind enough to do a radio drop and I still use it from time to time.
