- Crushed Pleats
Dralms is the latest project by Christopher Smith and band mates Shaunn Thomas Watt (Siskiyou), Peter Carruthers (Siskiyou) and Will Kendrick (Failing). With Dralms, Smith departs from his minimal and subdued musical constructions of his solo album’s The Beckon Call and Earning Keep, to a much more complex band-oriented sound. Dralms first release, the two song EP Crushed Pleats is a significant departure sonically as well as conceptually. Crushed Pleats was recorded in Vancouver’s Afterlife studios by John Raham and then handed over to be (re)produced by experimental, electronic artist Andy Dixon (Secret Mommy). Dralms debut album is due for release in the Spring of 2014.
