DRUM CARGO is something of an unusual album for New Age pioneers Steve and David Gordon. Whereas the vast majority of their recorded output features soothing electronic murmurs laid over a tapestry of found sounds and ambient noises, DRUM CARGO is almost entirely percussion. The Gordon brothers have explored this territory before on albums like SACRED DRUM VISIONS and SACRED SPIRIT DRUMS, but rarely with such striking intensity of purpose.
