Between that EP and the forthcoming release, they released a single, “Walls,” that Post-Punk.com calls “a stark departure from the primitive coldwave renderings” and says, “Reverb-heavy guitars and pitch-perfect vocal melodies draw you in while a hard-hitting drum machine and a steady bass line keep the groove underneath.”
SLOW TURISMO Release ‘You Were Dead’ Video
Canberra’s Slow Turismo today offer up a tongue in cheek ‘cult classic’ video for their latest single ‘You Were Dead’. The video – which comes to a somewhat morbid end – is an ironic celebration of the band’s recently announced triple j Unearthed spot at Canberra’s Groovin the Moo as well as their forthcoming single tour.
Slow Turismo’s music nestles in between several genres, and their new video is no different. The sound of intricate guitars, scattered drumbeats, groovy bass, and lush vocal harmonies mix seamlessly into video production playing with the fact that the song and video can be interpreted in different ways with the most common interpretation not necessarily what was initially intended.

Jon C Butler to release ‘A Little Misunderstanding’ single
‘There has been a misunderstanding hasn’t there?’ laughs Jon C Butler. ‘I mean, we all know it isn’t meant to be like this and maybe there should be a reassessment of the deal.
Although we all start out in life with good intentions and kind hearts, things don’t always turn out as we hope.
Maybe life has taken us down one too many roads less travelled. Or it’s thrown us a curveball when we needed an easy catch. Or perhaps we flew too close to the sun. Or we made a wrong choice at the crossroads.

After a week of jamming at an undisclosed location far from any towns and cities in the UK, FAERS ventured to Gothenburg to capture the new sounds they’d constructed with alongside Warner-affiliated producer and long-time friend Anders Largerfors.

Hundreds of releases and countless live performances littered the path that lead to 2012’s Modern Jester, artist Aaron Dilloway’s last major artistic statement as a solo artist and one his most well received documents since leaving Wolf Eyes, the prolific noise troupe that Dilloway co-founded in the late 90’s with musician Nate Young.
