Bark Psychosis – Shapeshifting (2004)

Bark Psychosis‘s 2004 album Codename: Dustsucker is a deliciously uneasy listen, difficult to pigeon-hole genre-wise. This track from it popped up in my memory as a good 7/4 contender. The beat at the start actually has a rather stark, ‘upright’ quality to it, making the choice of time signature seem purposefully awkward but, as the song gathers layers, the offbeat ride cymbal helps to smooth out the groove and propel it forwards.
