Beastie Boy Adam Yauch Speaks on New Bad Brain Album

In a recent interview in Pitchfork Media, Adam Yauch, producer of the new Bad Brains release through Megaforce, commented on the current status of their recording.

“With I Against I and after that, they started bringing the reggae influence into the rock style, and this record goes back to the [self-titled] ROIR cassette style where the dub is very separate from the hardcore tracks. There are tracks that are more straight-up hardcore and then tracks that are straight-up dub.”

 He continued with:

“If anything, they play more accurately than ever. They’re pretty incredible musicians. It was pretty amazing hearing those guys play together and lay it down. The way that they move together, the drums and bass and guitar, is almost like one complex instrument. I guess they’ve just been playing together so long that there’s a certain flow to the way the band plays that’s pretty unique. They have a lot of jazz influences in the way they go through changes. Like, the chord changes that they choose and the rhythms that they do are pretty amazing.”

Expect the new Bad Brains CD, Build a Nation, out this May.
