Kevin Drumm is a Chicago-based experimental artist and one of the most important musicians in the electroacoustic noise scene. During his career he has worked with great improvisers such as Mats Gustafsson, producer Jim O'Rourke and saxophonist Ken Vandermark. Kevin Drumm's Imperial Distortion (HOS 134LP) and Sheer Hellish Miasmah (EMEGO 053LP) are must-hear albums of contemporary avant-garde.The Back Room is a vinyl reissue of a previously self-released album. Two years ago, Drumm prepared by himself 100 copies of a CD-R full of intensive noise. The whole conception from the beginning sounded like something recorded not for a CD but for an LP. There are two parts: one consists of three very short, high-pitched pieces. Another part is built with two long compositions where you can hear and even feel many shades of analog electronic noise, with all of its brutal beauty.

Recorded, mixed, edited at Pathetic Bubble Studio 2009-2012. Source material for Repetitive Algae recorded in 2007. Spectral editing and time domain consultation on Repetitive Algae by Russell Haswell. "[...] The two side long pieces here seem to be two different sides of the same coin. 'Rediki' is a piece of electronics, loud at times, swirling-beating-oscillating most of the times and piercing right through your ears, without mercy, but it's also, at the same time, not y'r typical noise record. The deep end has a menacing/treating/oppressing sound that adds a lot of tension to the piece. Here is where the true power of the piece lies, and what sets the great composer aside from those who try their hands at noise. But alright it's a noise indeed, and for me the really great/even better piece of music is on the other side, 'Reptitive Algae', which seems to me all acoustic, and perhaps if not all, then at least for a greater part. Maybe it's here where Drumm got the idea for the title of the record. One side is crowded with buzzing and ringing of tones and on the other it's just crowded with sounds. Multi-layered with tons and tons (it seems) of acoustic sounds, rubbing against each other. Sound source: unknown. There is a bit of electronica in there, but don't ask me how this works. Well, perhaps I could guess: lots of loops of different lengths playing at the same time, so that they hardly make the same connection very soon again. Music with a great deal of tension, like a horror movie soundtrack. The graveyard shakes and all the bodies rise like one man, rattling their cages. This record is reminder I should play some Kevin Drumm soon again." (-) Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly.
