Another New Thing - XYZZY
Got a good feeling about this one, guys. Real cool disjointed alt-electro. Seriously, REAL COOL!
Take three self professed toerags, one in Sheffield, UK, one in Preston, UK and one in Pennsylvania, USA, quarantine them in their houses for 6 months for their own safety, tell them to make an album.
In 2015 Honer, Nagle and Himlin met on a Sonic Weekend in Wales. An annual event which was organised by Ann Shenton of Add N to X. People from all over the world gather in a remote farmhouse surrounded by sheep, to get hammered and make and record noise. Honer (ITOP, Moonlandingz, All Seeing I, I Monster) plays the role of producer for the weekend. Himlin said to Nagle “One day we should make some music together".
2020 Lockdown – Nagle sends Himlin some of his extended modular synthesiser workouts. Himlin writes songs over them and also adds guitar and bass.
Nagle said to Himlin “These aren't too shit, we should send these to Honer to do some mixes and production” And so the the game of audio “exquisite corpse” began. The tunes were passed from person to person via the transatlantic telegraph cable (Wetransfer) to add to or subtract from, until lockdown was eased and they were deemed complete.
+ Teal Vinyl.
Himlin casually dubbed the project “Another New Thing,” “because that's what it is!”.
Nagle dubbed the album XYZZY after a magic password key he had discovered playing text based adventure games on his computer in the 70s, the unknown pronunciation being a bonus in his mind.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
