TOTALLY SLOW: Self-titled: LP

Around age thirty, I decided that perfection is when nothing is wrong. I no longer needed to get that heart-in-a-vise feeling to recognize the greatness of a record, a book, a moment, a meal. It made the world far more satisfying. The guys in Totally Slow have been playing in North Carolina bands like Eagle Bravo and Rights Reserved for around twenty years, and I bet they feel the same way. There’s a touch of angst to their melodies, like remembering being a teenager half your life ago. These ten songs are so well planned and masterful that you might miss their genius. This debut goes off without a hitch. It’s perfect.
