Like most artists on the anticon. label, Martin Dosh has a way with being stylistically elusive. As a drummer-slash-keyboardist, a position played by Stevie Wonder and not too many others, Dosh has a combined sense of the rhythmic and the melodic that gives his music a propulsive weightiness, always rumbling or skipping or droning forward towards some unpredictable end. Much like fellow Minneapolitan Andrew Broder, with whom he collaborated on Fog's 2007 album Ditherer, there's a sense of having an upbringing in certain genres -- soul, jazz, hip hop, post-rock -- but an alliance to some nebulous vision of sound that doesn't point to any specific direction but up.
