Switzerland’s Lord Kesseli and The Drums are one of the most interesting two pieces we’ve come across in a while. Comprising of maverick multi-instrumentalist Dominik Kesseli and drummer and producer Michael Gallusser they make what we can best describe as Progressive Slowcore; imagine Galaxie 500 and Radiohead taking mescaline in a wild meadow and you’ll be in the right ballpark.
They hit the UK next week for a series of live shows across the country:

We thought it would be interesting to find out what’s on the stereo in their tour van; a fascinating and eclectic collection, as it turns out:
