Album Notes
Old Time Musketry presents a joyous music that draws on the exuberant spirit of jazz, the poignant melodies and soulful grooves of rock and folk music, the energy and spontaneity of free improvisation, and a willfully experimental attitude towards combining these elements into a unique vision of American music. Old Time Musketry joined forces in early 2009 in Brooklyn and has been developing their unique sound by performing widely in the New York area and touring around the country.

“Drifter” is the follow-up to their acclaimed 2012 debut album, “Different Times,” the first release on the newly launched SteepleChase LookOut record label. The album received a four-star rating in Downbeat Magazine and inclusion in their year-end “Best Albums” list as well as several “Best Debut” mentions from other critics.

The new album both extends the group’s compositional scope and brings a more refined focus to its unique sound and instrumentation. Featuring saxophone, clarinet, accordion, melodica, piano, bass, and a drum kit with a giant marching bass drum, the music ranges from brooding rock ballads and hypnotic grooves to off-kilter marches and barnyard waltzes, all the while maintaining a strong and personal musical vision.
