SLOW FIGHT: Down in the Base: CS

Ramshackle good times. Basement tuneage party. Friends with instruments. No rules, anything goes. Slow Fight swings wildly between the sound of early Lookout! 7”s and Kill Rock Stars compilation tracks, sometimes sweet, hook-laden snot punk (“Bottom of Everything”) followed by sharp left turns to bass-driven, shadowy, shout-and-moan art rock (“Don’t Know Him”). Pigeonholers might see Slow Fight as unfocused; I see it as fantastic and full of heart. The Canadian version of Chattanooga region rock. Professional pink cassette with white case and lovely fold out lyric insert. Highly recommended. –Matt Seward (slowfight.bandcamp)
