SHORES: Coup de Grace: LP

Mar 07, 2011

Slowcore was an indie subgenre in the ‘90s, characterized by a moody sound with whispered vocals and sneaky grooves. Some of the popular slowcore bands were Slint, Low, and Codeine. Shores are staying true to the style. It sounds like they recorded this record in a giant cabin in the woods, each band member standing twenty yards from the next. I tend to find this type of stuff tedious, hookless, and devoid of joy, and Shores are no exception, but this record is heavy on atmosphere and grew on me as it spun, drawing me into its hushed, dark world.
