Drumless Version of Chromatics’ “Kill for Love”

According to the band:

“It’s 11 tracks, because some of the tracks don’t have drums to begin with. It’s all the pop songs without drums… I think people will have a lot of fun with it because everyone keeps remixing ‘Birds of Paradise’ because there were no drums on it… I also mastered an instrumental version of the entire album. I always master multiple versions in case I want to collage or edit them later. I was really liking the way the vocal mixes sounded with no drums and I think that the drums on the album are so heavy, that it’s interesting to hear the record as this almost-empty, almost-a cappella kind of thing.”

  1. Very cool. It is neat to see bands giving out drumless versions of their songs. With the exception of http://minusdrums.com (which has like 800 drumless tracks) and bands like Lamb Of God (they released a producer version of their CD Sacrament), no really does this.

    Personally, I wish all bands released not only the full mix, but the individual tracks for each song so that we, the fans, could re-mix however we pleased. That way, if we played guitar, we could mix-out the solo for example, and then practice playing the solo the actual band playing.

    For drummers, of course, we’d mix out the drums and then be able to sit in with our favorite bands as the drummer either trying to duplicate the songs that they’ve written, or even come up with ideas that we thought were more fun.

    If any record companies read these comments… consider it! There is a market for such things!
