Biography

About Drum and Bell Tower - By Kevin Kane



Drum & Bell Tower is essentially Williams Lake resident Brent Morton, strumming and drumming into his computer. D&BT drifts and shifts through the various elements that comprise its sound: swirling psy- chedelic folk-rock, thumping techno, spaced-out ambience, murky vocals/ lyrics that sound like half-remembered dreams, and the occasional prog-like odd time signature. In fact, like one of those epic double vinyl releases of the early 70s, “The Black Need” has an almost conceptual flow to it (though I’ve yet to ascertain exactly what the concept might be).

Try to imagine DJ Shadow collaborating with Aphex Twin and sampling heavily from Pink Floyd, Kraftwerk, Red House Painters, Mike Oldfield, Sigur Ros, and David Bowie’s Berlin period instrumentals. That gives you a general idea, but it really only just scrapes the surface of an album that feels slightly different each time I play it.
