Little Drummer Boy (Single)

by Love Spirals Downwards



This 1998 recording was the last musical collaboration between band founder, Ryan Lum, and vocalist, Suzanne Perry. It's an atmospheric drum ‘n’ bass re-imagining of the classic Christmas song, “The Little Drummer Boy,” featuring jazzy Rhodes piano by guest musician, Gabriel D. Vine, of Monkey Bars. Though created for one of the popular 'Excelsis' holiday music collections released by Projekt Records, the song was rejected and sat dormant for a year. It has been made available as an mp3 over the years -- sometimes called “The Little Drum ‘n’ Bass Boy.”

Happy Holidays!


released November 24, 1999
