Guardian Alien is the project of Brooklyn-based drummer Greg Fox, as well as vocalist Alex Drewchin. Their set at Basilica Soundscape yesterday served as my introduction to their work. All I can say is damn, Fox is one hell of a drummer.

Their songs are of the experimental/avant-garde world, with Drewchin’s vocals and electronic work built around the unstoppable steady force that is Fox behind the kit. Their songs took a while to get going, but once they hit that groove, it was hard not to be taken over by what they were doing.

Fox is so good behind his kit that Basilica brought him back out to play solo from an elevated area above the stage to warm the crowd before Swans took the stage. Now that’s saying something.
