Slow Children - "Resting On Our Laurels"
(Candy Apple Death Records 2002, CDEP)
From Aural Innovations #23 (April 2003)
The bio describes the band as a low-fi laptop indie crack rock band! The two piece band started off as a total studio project with their best friend, the program Reason! The band are now a live performing act and from the reviews I read it sounds like something to see. The band have quite strange and funny lyrics (samples-poetry). Pop Lore featuring Marvin A. Day reminds me a little of some of the stuff by King Missile. As for the music, it is mostly total chill out music with cool beats and lots of strange samples and multiple different instruments. The band clearly are having a lot of fun, with song titles like "Fabio Salsa", "Sucks Ass", and "Fece Filled Snifter (Shit in a Glass)" and not taking life to serious. Enjoy this CD as they enjoyed making it!
