Lo-fi doom SLOTH "The Night Of The Flying Banshee EP"


Lo-fi doom SLOTH "The Night Of The Flying Banshee EP"

Talk about ticking a lot of Fuzzy's boxes: Doom. Recorded to tape. Killer vocals. Wild guitar work. Dulcimer. Pandemically dark theme. Santa Cruz*. Check out the new EP from SLOTH entitled "The Night of the Flying Banshee." Or as I like to call it, "Soundtrack to the Pandemic" because it strikes me, as well, exactly how I feel most of the time now. Have a listen and decide for yourself:

I would dig this just for the doom and the vocals (both great), and the lo-fi to-tape recording, but the wild guitar work is just blowing my mind. I love it when a guitar takes off into outer space while the doom just chugs along underneath. 

And it's a pretty rare doom album that includes a dulcimer! Badass! It's like the band's secret weapon. 

Goes without saying that the Randy Holden cover is awesome. 

Sure, "The Night of the Flying Banshee" is a little short, but that's why the Bandcamp app has a REPEAT mode. 

All this sonic tastiness (dreadfulness?) comes from 2 musicians in Santa Cruz: 

  • Ariel Pang- Electric Guitars, Bass Guitar, Dulcimer, Drums, and Keyboards
  • Josh Diaz- Vocals
Recording details: 

Recorded analog on Tascam MF-P01 4-track cassette recorder and digitally from September- October 2020

* Because OF COURSE Fuzzy went to school in Santa Cruz. Explains a lot, right?
