SLOWNESS released their second LP, How to Keep from Falling off a Mountain, on June 3, 2014. The record was produced by Monte Vallier (Weekend, The Soft Moon, Wax Idols) and Geoffrey Scott, and was mastered by Kramer (Low, Galaxie 500). The band will kick of a European tour to support the record in Leipzig, Germany on June 13, 2014. Slowness orchestrate a glorious waterfall of embracing melodies that are cleverly bedded in a sea of hazy, psychedelic and yearning champagne. Breda Massman, CLANK FOR BREAKFAST Slowness was formed in San Francisco in 2008 by Julie Lynn and Geoffrey Scott. The EP Hopeless but Otherwise was released in 2011. After touring America, the group began work on the LP, For Those Who Wish to See the Glass Half Full, released in March 2013. How to Keep from Falling off a Mountain was written and recorded by Lynn and Scott in San Francisco and New York City (with Lynn on bass, keys and vocals; Scott on guitar, keys, and vocals) and features Scott Putnam on drums (with Christy Davis taking the album's final track, "Anon, part IV"), Greg Dubrow on bass, Kelly Kyle on pedal steel, and Christopher Shane, Dave Voigt, and Sean Eden (Luna) on guitars. They use a steady, understated, anchor beat, loping, limber basslines, and then, momentously, spiderweb guitar parts that circle, tickle, chime, ring, and repeat, looping into peacefully mesmeric riffs. Thus, they have more in common with not only For Against, but The Feelies, Murmur R.E.M., the "Beginning to See the Light" Velvets, Chills, and '80s Brit postpunk than dreampop-even if the effect is as dreamy, beautiful, and greatly affecting. Jack Rabid, THE BIG TAKEOVER.
