Mastodon Side Project Arcadea Is Not Metal, Does Not Suck
Reminiscent at once of 70’s prog and 80’s synthy electronica, Arcadea is the project of Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor, and keyboard wizards Core Atoms and Raheem Amlani (who also sings). It’s kind of like prog played by EDM kids.
The teaser is cool as hell, but there’s also a full track up:
I am really digging the sound of the electronic elements with the totally raw, natural drums. It’s a nice contrast, and gives some serious legitimacy to the much maligned electronic music genre.
