Man Forever + So Percussion

Man Forever with So Percussion
Ryonen
Thrill Jockey

New classical collective So Percussion joined forces with Oneida’ drummer Kid Millions, recording as his Man Forever project, for Ryonen, a release on the indie imprint Thrill Jockey. Two long form pieces combine Millions’s experimental rock drumming with the post-minimal inspired playing of So Percussion to create a swinging, polyrhythm-infused music. Unlike their recording last year of Dan Trueman’s music, where So focused on playing unusual instruments, here drums reign supreme. Reverberant ambling vocals soar over the top of the maelstrom of beats, sometimes overlapping into a hazy chorus of held chords.
