Transcendental Tracks - Episode 1

Welcome to Transcendental Tracks! On a weekly basis I will post an article highlighting a group whose work cannot be classified as a single type of music.

For my first post I'd like to share a band that I believe to be the posterchild of genre-transcending music. Subtle is a six-man group out of Oakland, CA that I stumbled upon one night on a local late-night TV program in San Diego. After hearing just one song I knew these guys were something new and incredible. They combine rap, rock, jazz, electro, indie, acoustic, and classical music to create a sound and style unlike any other band.

Their live performances are totally unique and frontman Adam "Doseone" Drucker (of cLOUDDEAD and Themselves fame) entertains and bewilders audiences with his between-song stories of "Gunts", desireable blood types, and the terrible nature of Anthony Keidis's lyrics and wife. They have 3 solid full-length albums for sale on itunes, but if you want to be even more impressed, see them LIVE!
