The first song to appear from the album – Hit & Run – was released as a stand alone single on the 31st of December and is available on bandcamp.

The outpouring of fuzzy guitar melded with robust percussion and rumbling bass stirred by a throaty vocal that emerges from the speakers minds the listener of a mud flow as it surges through the room.

SlowHandClap – Vertigo – Audio

SlowHandClap is an English sludge trio.

SlowHandClap

An intriguing mix of ’90s britpop and ’60s psychedelia is merged in to one construct with SlowHandClap who deliver their music in alignment with the band name, though far from the listener also waving them away finds themselves totally engrossed in the melange of ideas.

Flat tones are merged with flowery countenance delivering music that finds the listener twiddling with settings, prior to settling on everything – be they tweeters,  sub-woofers, bass, midi all set at maximum extension and it all works perfectly in their latest track Vertigo, which has been sitting in my email inbox since the latter part of last month, for which I apologise both to you and to SlowHandClap. Perhaps it is I who deserves the band moniker for tardy delay not they – to whom I extended profuse applause and look forward to coming back to again in short order.

Muddler – Dogwater – Audio

The US sludge quartet Muddler released the EP Leave room for contemplation earlier in the month.

The listener finds themselves mired knee-high in warm gloop immediately on hitting play as Muddler deliver their flattened sticky compositions. Far from struggling to escape the enveloping mud the audience immerses their body in the mossy bog, revelling in every moment.

From the four track EP (available on bandcamp) my selection is the second – Dogwater.

Rest assured, well to be more prescient; wallow, in certainty I will come back to Muddler more than once in the future as who can’t be other than transfixed by the puddles of the quartet.

A four track release (available on bandcamp) that fills the the room with hanging baskets of moss from which the sounds drip akin to an aural depiction of Knudsen diffusion.

My selection, from an EP of munificence, is the closer Lava Lamp.

The latest track to appear, Felony, is an approaching nine minute doom laden darkness that clogs the synapses with a sound that reminds of squelching through a swamp in which the listener becomes stuck-fast by its hypnotic revolving beat.
