Tom Misch brought out a new album this week filled with so many drum bangers that I had to get in there and notate them for you! I've gone through the tracks on Geography and written out a beat sheet for easy access to the songs on the album- have a listen through and use this sheet to help you understand what the drums are doing and, most importantly, have a go at playing along!
I am a massive fan of combining electronic sounds and rhythms with more traditional, live drum sounds and this album captures that sound and feel so well. With this in mind, I have notated all of the beats for an acoustic kit, even when the album sounds may be electronic, for example using a snare instead of a clap or on the bridge of 'South Of The River' adding in a floor tom instead of a bass drum in bars 4 and 6 to make it easier to play. Have an experiment and see what sounds you can create!
Below is a free transcription for all of the beats on Geography (the program I use to notate doesn't allow writing music in 6/8 so I've had to include a separate, hand written notation for Movie!). Have some fun and get stuck in!
