Aleks and the Drummer invade Brooklyn to record
Chicago's Aleks and the Drummer will soon be hooking up with some east coast heavyweights on the recording of their next CD.
The group has done a great job of getting their name out nationally. I thought of them as my own personal find, then I kept seeing their name pop up in bigger music blogs!
The band has been keeping plans under wrap on the recording of their next album, but they recently told People with Animal Heads that those plans are set.
"Aleks and the Drummer are going to record their first EP in Brooklyn on December 1st with producer Dave Sitek and engineer Chris Coady," the band wrote.
Sitek is the man behind production on artists such as TV on the Radio, Celebration, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Scarlett Johansson and Coady has worked with all of the afforementioned, plus Gang Gang Dance, Architecture in Helsinki and more.
"We think it will probably sound OK working with these amateurs," the band joked.
It's great to hear the next Aleks and the Drummer offering will be in capable hands. They are making some truly inventive sounds.
