Ilan Rubin has an impressive musical résumé. The San Diego native has played drums for Lostprophets and Angels and Airwaves and is a regular member of Nine Inch Nails. Oh, and he's not even 25 years old yet. To rub it in all our talentless faces, Rubin's project The New Regime proves that he's also an accomplished singer and guitar player.
In this episode of A Trolley Show, Rubin performs "Daydream" off his Exhibit A album. By stripping some of electronic-industrial influences from the recorded version, he exposes the song's gritty blues foundation. He even manages to make the trolley announcer sound like a deliberate addition to the song.
