Idk I always thought what Thomas was doing was *perfectly* stated to support whatever the other musicians were playing. He's just playing the same kind of music as them. It's not showing off, it's not being flashy, it's just doing what feels *right* at the moment, being impulsive, living in the moment.

 

He does, in fact, occasionally slow burn, but he'll always add embellishments, and I like that. Personally, I never thought he over played or over accented, that's exactly the amount of playing and accenting that should come out of a band with 8 fucking members going ape shit crazy like The Volta did.

i think if Omar wouldn't want him to go apeshit he wouldn't go apeshit.

Listen to Octahedron, it feels like a completely diffrent drummer.

He is not overplaying there

Yes he is. I thought his drums were the worst part of the album. Even though luciforms is badass.

I absolutely loved him on Bedlam. Still do! 

 

Reminds me of some IDM programming like Venetian Snares in a good way.

He's demanding the video get taken down because he didn't consent to his name being used for it.

Damn, some crazy stuff. Thomas has probably been pretty vinegar because he didn't get to groove hard as fuck like D all over Estrangular El Extranjero and the following tracks of that respective album

If you forget all the baby mama beating, tour bus incontinence and his apathetic approach to paid internet tutelage, Thomas Pridgen seems like a pretty cool guy.

Still not the most polished drummer, but looks like he is just having fun with some friends.
