NAH - Difficult

Mastering, 2013Ryan Schwabe

On closing number “Pause” Kuhn submerges his feral drumming in so much distortion that at certain times it sounds like waves of feedback have obscured any trace of a beat. The rest of Difficult is, for the most part, far more accessible, and “Neighbours Below” kicks the album off on a particularly high note as Kuhn’s barreling drum patterns—which sound like sped-up boom-bap beats that employ empty trash cans—are reminiscent of Death Grips’ aggro noise-rap.
