Central California quartet Slow Season announce the reissue of their 2012 self-titled debut album via RidingEasy Records. The band’s unpretentious throwback full length has been remixed and remastered with new artwork for proper release on the same label that issued their popular 2014 sophomore album Mountains. The completely renewed Slow Season will be released on LP, CD and download on December 4th, 2015.
The band’s sound effortlessly nods to greats of the 60s-70s like Led Zeppelin, The Who, Black Sabbath, et al, without sounding like a caricature. Rather, as one can immediately hear, this is hypnotic, heavy, and howling rock ‘n’ roll that defies both musical and temporal categorization.
The Visalia, CA band — Daniel Rice (vocals, guitar), David Kent (guitar), Hayden Doyel (bass), and Cody Tarbell (drums) — scale new heights, while recognising where it all began. Having recorded both of their albums live on reel-to-reel at Tarbell’s home studio, the band eschews the digital trappings of music today to give their analog sound its crackling, kinetic energy.
