Full Album Stream: Brandon Seabrook’s Needle Driver – “Needle Driver”

Brandon Seabrook’s Needle Driver are one of those groups that really are almost impossible to classify, because “avant-jazz” and “alternative metal” just don’t do the band justice. Fronted by guitarist Brandon Seabrook and supported by bassist Johnny Deblase (Sabbath Assembly) and drummer Allison Miller (Ani Defranco, The Seth Myers Show), the trio defy musical expectations and typical song construction in favor of off-the-wall instrumental tracks that range from low and slow (“Ventwhorerisin'”) to erratic, jazzy shredfests (“Entropic Vacuum Party”).

Needle Driver is the first output from Needle Driver and will be released on October 27 through Nefarious Industries, but you can stream the album now.
