Michael Bland: Soul Asylum’s Big Beat

Inside Tracks

Quick Licks

“Gravity”
It only takes about ten seconds of listening to realize Michael Bland is a powerhouse of a drummer. His playing is both slamming and creative. On “Gravity,” he begins with a tom-and-snare assault that accents dotted quarter-notes. For the verse, he leads with his bass drum and accents off beats on his crash cymbals, creating a part that fits the song perfectly.
