The story of a drum stick, starring me as a fan girl

Here I am, having a relaxing weekend, time to scrape some blog text! First of all, I have a new drum cover out in case you haven’t noticed. This time we’re serving some All Time Low, the song being one of the many cool tunes off from their latest album Don’t Panic. And by cool I’m foremostly meaning the drum parts. As I have mentioned earlier, I love how the ATL-drummer Rian Dawson has kept his drumming genuine and complex during the years of the band evolving from a small pop punk band to a world-known rock band.

All Time Low coming to Finland!!!

Here’s a thing that made my yesterday:

I got a message from a friend, to whom I actually teach playing the drums. Not long ago we were checking out a gig by Limp Bizkit, which needless to say was awesome. During the aftermath we talked about bands we’d like to see live. The first and brightest wish in my mind was of course All Time Low coming to Finland one day. And this was the message I got yesterday, All Time Low coming to Finland. […] Read more!

Smoking Drums!

So there we were filming the drum cover for ATL’s A Love Like War when we found our old smoke machine. We hadn’t used in a couple years so obviously we needed to check if it was still working. And what better way to do that than to spice the drum cover up with some smokey vibes.

We plugged the thing in but it didn’t show any signs of life. None at all. At first though. […] Read more!

Bass sounds!

More bass-related stuff? Hell yeah!

So, here we go again! I would like to talk about some great bass sounds on punk/pop music. Last time I talked about basses and now I will make you listen to them!

 

1. Mark Hoppus / Blink 182

Surprise? I think Mark’s sound is one of the most iconic pop/punk sounds out there. Really bright and clear sound that sticks out from the bands mix really easily. Notice also how Mark plays chords almost all the time just to support the bands overall sound. […] Read more!

What’s up on Tuesday? We have a new drum cover out: All Time Low’s new single A Love Like War! I guess my cover is among the first takes on the song at YouTube. And that’s because the song itself is still fresh from the oven being released just a while ago.

A Love Like War is a track from the extended version of Don’t Panic album. As you may know, the four of us reviewed the song right after it’s release. […] Read more!

1. Jasey Rae
A classic ATL track. If I recall correctly, this was the song that made them break out to a larger public. And I might not be wrong in remembering that it happened through the hated but so widely used MySpace! […] Read more!
