RNDM Acts on 2LP

Featuring Pearl Jam Bassist Jeff Ament, Singer/Songwriter Joseph Arthur and Drummer Richard Stuverud!

Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and his longtime drumming collaborator Richard Stuverud team with Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Joseph Arthur in the new band RNDM. The group's debut album, Acts, features 12-songs recorded by Pearl Jam engineer Brett Eliason during a four-day session in April of 2012 at Ament's Montana studio.

Throughout, the songs crackle with a plug-and-play spontaneity. Pearl Jam fans will surely note Ament’s distinctive bass work on concise blasts of rock’n’roll like “Letting Go Of Will,” “Throw You To The Pack” and “Look Out!,” while the trio stretches its musical muscles on blissed-out jams like “Hollow Girl” and the soulful, wah-wah guitar-tinged “Williamsburg.”

Elsewhere, the acoustic, harmonica-tinged “Cherries in the Snow” highlights Arthur’s knack for simple, effective songwriting, while the rumbling mid-tempo rocker “Darkness” and the hard-charging opener “Modern Times,” driven by a power-pop Stuverud beat, showcase how the hybrid styles of the three musicians blend together so smoothly.

“It felt like those first bands you’re in, where the first few weeks you ate and slept and breathed the music that you were working on,” Ament says. “All you did was hum those songs until you got to the next practice. I was completely open to whatever was going to happen, and I know Joseph was too.”
