When it comes to the songwriting process, drummers typically get the short end of the stick (excuse the pun). Crash, bang, boom is supposedly all they've really got. Since singers, guitarists, and bass players can make all those fancy notes, they get to strut around out front and get all the credit. Enter Hot Victory, a stringed instrument's worst nightmare. The band features two drummers, Caitlin Love and Ben Stoller. Equipped with a symmetrical setup including electronic and acoustic drums, a shared hi-hat, and some samples and loops to play over, the duo create hypnotic, prog-tastic space journeys that fascinate and perplex. A Hot Victory set is a mindbender that will leave any "fretters" in the room scratching their heads, and any skinsmen, or women, high-fiving each other. Score one "Hot Victory" for all tub-thumpers!
