Mike Miley reviewed in Modern Drummer

Alumnus Mike Miley, drummer with Rival Sons got a terrific review on Modern Drummer. “Miley’s hyperactive yet in-the-pocket kit work is a perfect encapsulation of the band’s overall approach. Clearly he’s a student of the instrument as it was approached before new wave and disco, when a drummer was allowed to play, dammit, and a pleasing sense of off-the-cuff looseness pervades nearly every track here. Fortunately, Miley has a nose for detail and exactitude as well, so he’s not just offering period sounds and licks—he’s doing it with confidence, taste, and great accuracy, and after repeated listens you might just begin appreciating his playing for what it is, not what it reminds you of.”
