about

You wait ages for a new Slomo album … and then one comes along.

Following a rare spate of gigs in 2012-2013, Slomo now present their fourth album ‘Transits’, a distillation of the intervening years’ spontaneous improvisations for time and space. ‘Transits’ finds the duo of Holy McGrail and Howard Marsden further psychedelicising their core guitar/synth drone sound with loops, bit-crushers and ring modulators to deliver three shimmering celestial pieces for frozen night skies.

‘Transits’ features artwork by acclaimed Texas-based artist Xochi Solis and sleeve notes from the Spanish explorer and poet, Annexus Quamm.

“…sounds like it has just eaten a nosebag full of codeine and is now filming itself with a slow motion phone app. Twinkling, celestial … increasingly sublime … a slow, psychedelic surge lurching and swelling towards static bliss.”
—THE WIRE

“Planet-sized and overwhelming … ‘Transits’ is music for the spheres.”
—DUSTED MAGAZINE

“Deep space bass, unhurried and contemplative … ‘Transits’ is an album to be savoured and revisited.”
—FREQ

“Immaculate night-sky ambiences for guitar and synth. The mystique of unfathomable distance and the innate desire to explore it.”
—ATTN:MAGAZINE

“…this is proper space music that’s highly potent even for the seasoned psychonaut, and stands head and shoulders above much contemporary ambient/drone”
—NORMAN RECORDS

“I am often reminded of the first two Cluster albums because Slomo give off the same disorientating feeling … yet it also takes me back to the classic era of Warp Records techno because of the intense walls of bass. Deep, heavy, spaced-out drones … this is space music 2017.”
—WAS IST DAS

“There’s as much murky menace as there is psychedelic delirium and galaxy gazing on Transits, and the album’s both darkly mesmerising and blissful as a result.”
—SIX NOISES

“Psychedelic drone of epic proportions”
—FUZZY SUN
