Funky but unfocused would be the best way to describe this collection of 11 tracks that explore elements of R&B, acid jazz, funk and hip-hop.

The Drum Chord Theory is never unpleasant, but it’s also never very distinct.

NR
A couple decent grooves here and there, but poor mixing and weak vocals ruin this thing for me unfortunately.

An album full of childish lyrics, superb production, and killer features from Steve Lacy, SYD, and Kari Faux. Endearing, juvenile, and original. With The Drum Chord Theory, Matt Martians has competently crafted a fun, inconsequential record; half dizzying display of technical skill, half forgettable display of immature songwriting.
Purchasing The Drum Chord Theory from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
