Overview

Less of a side project, RNDM is the long-conceptualized but slow-to-materialize band of Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and veteran songwriter Joseph Arthur, joined by drummer Richard Stuverud, who previously backed Ament in his Three Fish solo project. Though the three musicians had planned their collaboration for over ten years, debut album Acts was spawned from a fly-by-night recording marathon that churned out these 12 songs from start to finish in just four days. While the players have all been around long enough to know the nuances of both songwriting and studiocraft inside out, the shadows of their '90s Seattle roots hang over Acts, in particular the enormous cloud of Pearl Jam, whose influence colors some of RNDM's strongest moments. Melancholy alt-rock radio songs like "Williamsburg" and "What You Can't Control" seem lodged sturdily in the muted earth tones of alternative rock's glory days.
