Trying to describe Aleks and the Drummer is like trying to describe a digital photo one pixel at a time -- it's hard to get across the whole picture without piling up a lot of information. They sound psychedelic, but not spacey or druggy or self-indulgent like a typical psych band. Favoring Krautrock rhythms cranked up to punk-rock speeds, elaborate minor-key melodies and ethereal, abstract vocals make them difficult to label.
