Review Summary: Zach Hill solo work is to Hella as David Lynch is to Steven Spielberg, but that doesn't mean it's good.Grand, assumptive statements are not the most professional way to go about writing, but I'm going to say it: Zach Hill is one of (if not the most) prolific and talented drummers in contemporary music. His primary project, Hella, developed a new dialect of math rock that thrived on his spastic, off-kilter sense of rhythm accents as well as his hard, pounding style. His drumming in Team Sleep helped redefine the way trip hop works.
