Beaten By Them's Latest Record Signs of Life Lands This Week!

November 12, 2008 - Logic Pole/Thrill Jockey releases the latest by Beaten By Them, Signs Of Life, a dynamic and cinematic fusion of classical-meets-rock music. Their music originates in the gritty tones of Andrew Harris’s guitar and is filtered through the sensibilities of Max McCormick, whose arrangements owe more to beats-based electronic and world music than rock. Cellist Boima Tucker is a key ingredient in Beaten by Them: his performances, which are lyrical and fiery, truly define the band’s sound. The spaciousness and power of Beaten by Them’s music owe much to the spontaneity of drummer Ulf Bjorkbom, a regular player in San Francisco’s jazz scene. Recorded in analog at Logicpole Studio in Melbourne, Australia, Signs of Life was engineered by Aaron Prellwitz and mixed by Max McCormick and Andrew Harris.

Previous Praise for Beaten By Them:

The drama recalls early Dirty Three, but without the same sense of careening abandon. These songs go where they need to go and the band just follow along, which makes Signs of Life sound organic instead of forced or “written.”

Signs of Life reviewed on Textura

his is a long, winding instrumental number that's full of beautiful layers and other amazing things, so before you give it a listen I highly recommend that you slap some headphones on your head. Or else. - Side One: Track One

Exceptionally introspective stuff. - Aiding and Abetting
