2018 Countdown | Drums & Tuba

Brian Wolf and Tony Nozero are back; after a long recording hiatus the legendary Austin duo hit the studio with some friends adding percussion, flute, and guitar. While the lineup has expanded, the avant garde irreverence and focal point is in full effect. Triumph’s cover immediately reveals the posture; power to the people in this challenging time. Live samples weave in and out of rhythmic chants as the tuba marks the time with layers of swooping melody painting the scene. Triumph continues to intrigue and delight us, at once reminiscent of an old art film and a futuristic landscape. While the complexity might seem daunting, Triumph is suprisingly accessible.
