Put this collective in the “rock” bin only because rock fans are so likely to like them. For while many Brooklyn bands bandy about the term “experimental,” Slow Six makes it meaningful with piercing string snippets, haunted motifs, and glassy—or is it Glass-y?—synths. Call them post rock, call them chamber music, call them experimental neo-classical. No matter what you choose, understand that broad genre descriptors do little to describe the striking compositions of Brooklyn collective Slow Six. Since 1998, Christopher Tignor and company have crafted minimal beauties and mesmerizing suites out of amplified strings, electric guitars, keyboards, homegrown software instruments, and video projections mixed live throughout space. In fact, they’ve done such a marvelous job that powerhouse neo-classical label, New Albion, snapped the collective up and is releasing their forthcoming full length album Nor’easter. Of course, we’ll let a few professionals try their hand at describing the sound: Flavorpill... “Uncommon serenity and lushness…a space of majestic respite from Lower East Side antics” Time Out New York... “Chris Tignor’s gently evocative postminimalist reveries prove one of the year’s most pleasant surprises.” Stylus Magazine... “Endeavors to achieve organic unity out of multiplicity.” John Dilberto, Echoes Radio Program... “Arvo Part meets King Crimson.” ~~~~~~~( TOP OF THE WEEK [ MySpace ] | [ Last.fm ] ). ~~~~~~~~~~ Artist - Slow Six Album - Tomorrow Becomes You [ * * * * * ] Release Date - 2010 Genre - Instrumental, Experimental, Post-rock [ EXCEPTIONAL ] Tracklist 1 The Night You Left New York 9:10 2 Cloud Cover Part 1 5:51 3 Cloud Cover Part 2 6:21 4 Because Together We Resonate 6:09 5 Sympathetic Response System Part 1 7:23 6 Sympathetic Response System Part 2 7:10 7 These Rivers Between Us 9:25 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Slow Six - Tomorrow Becomes You Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Artist - Slow Six Album - Nor'easter Release Date - 2007 Genre - Instrumental, Experimental, Post-rock Tracklist 1 The Pulse of This Skyline With Lightning Like Nerves 14:27 2 Contemplation and Dissolution of an Idea for Two Pairs 9:16 3 Echolalic Transitions 14:53 4 Hold Fast That Fragile Symmetry 9:28 5 Distant Light, Part 1: 'Chromatic Clouds Surround' 9:16 6 Distant Light, Part 2: 'Now New Colors Fall Like Rain' 12:26 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Slow Six - Nor'easter Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Artist - Slow Six Album - Private Times in Public Places Release Date - 2004 Genre - Instrumental, Experimental, Post-rock Tracklist 1 This Is Your Last Chance (Before I Sleep) 2 Evening Without Atonement 3 The Lines We Walked When We Walked Once Together -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Slow Six - Private Times in Public Places Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Recommendations: Redhooker | The Monroe Transfer | Phoenix and The Turtle | Tokyo 2005 | Like Bells -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- MILLION THANKS Touristas... --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
