You already know the Drumhedz. You just don't know that you know the Drumhedz. They've beenplaying on your favorite albums for years, setting the tone or keeping time at the best shows you've everseen, making the young stars sound like legends and the legends sound like gods, quietly stackingGrammys without ever delivering an acceptance speech, and moving onto the next gig with the simplesatisfaction of a job well done. They're the session players and the road warriors, or, "Cats that werelooked over, but they're bad," in the words of the Drumhedz bandleader Chris Dave, who's drummedfor everyone from Adele to Bieber and Dolly to D'Angelo. "They all have stories like mine." Sure enough,the group's self-titled debut LP showcases a family of musicians whose credits coil like ivy around nearlyevery pillar of modern sound, getting together to do things to music they couldn't on anyone else'sproject.
