13'56 & 13'05
stunning debut from Slows, (a side project for WIRE guitarist Matthew Simms) - 2 beautiful side long pieces created on farfisa matador organ with fx pedals which recall the lush, minimal drones & arrangements of the likes of Terry Riley, JD Emmanuel & 'Dreamweapon'-era Spacemen 3.
Matthew has been a member of Wire since 2010 (playing on 2013’s acclaimed “Change Becomes Us” LP) & It Hugs Back, having released 3 albums with a new one due for 2015. He was recently invited to contribute to the new Bill Fay album, as well as a soundtrack to the film “Suzanne” by Electrelane’s Verity Susman. His individual, self taught approach to the guitar, the focus on unusual sounds & tunings & his way of playing within, rather than ‘on top’ of a song, has helped him forge his growing reputation. A beautiful record on the eye and ear and limited to a pressing of 300 only.
