I remember reading in some industry publications about two years ago about this very cool band called, The Drums, from Brooklyn. Now, before you stop reading this due to illegally tight jeans, check them out. This band is actually pretty rad. The Drums released their second album Portamento, on September 5th 2011,and also revealed that they almost split at the end of June due to stylistic disagreements. We chatted (briefly) with Jacob Graham before their show tonight at The Drunken Unicorn.
