June 3 marks the release of How To Keep From Falling Off A Mountain, the second album from Slowness (out through Blue Aurora Audio on vinyl/digital). The LP benefits from some high profile production talent, including producer Monte Vallier (Wax Idols, The Soft Moon, Weekend) plus Kramer (Galaxie 500, Low) on mastering. It sounds great but isn't over baked, Founding members Julie Lynn (bass/keys/vocals) and Geoffrey Scott (guitar/keys/vocals) are joined by a host of other musicians on the album. Enough of the preamble, let's get stuck in. Lead single Mountain opens the album and unsurprisingly, it's one of the strongest tracks. While Division follows a light groove and highlights the beautiful vocal harmonies, a delight throughout the LP. It's perhaps the most conventional song on the album, from this point Slowness start their exploration. Taking queues from classic prog rock, psych and dream pop but not sitting firmly in any particular camp. Anon could've been written in the 60s or 70s, if it had, Pink Floyd would've been fans. This is trippy stuff Anon (Part II) is the most concise but there's plenty of indulgent moments, or minutes (is more accurate). Which is intentional however it will eliminate casual listeners and be too slow moving for some (excuse the pun). Slowness have distilled their dreamy psych pop powers into a hypnotic concoction that's thoughtful, meditative and wholly intoxicating. It's not a quick fix, this is a mature record but it's worth the trip. Perfectly suited to a smoke filled room.
