After Slomo Drags' first show, an old English record producer remarked that they sound like 'sinister ELO.' The Austin quintet couldn't help but be pleased with the comparison (perhaps a bit more articulate than when my drunk best friend said they sounded like a 'decadent dessert' after their next show.)
Released in Last April, Slomo Drags' self titled debut EP (Already Dead Tapes) channels' rock greats like Queen, T. Rex and Big Star,' according to Austin Monthly. To me, it sounds like Elvis Costello got kidnapped by Thin Lizzy and tried to play Wilco's Greatest LP's from memory.
Lead single "Going Out of Business" is four minutes of melodic self-recrimination laid over gritty double tracked guitars. KUTX calls it a "mind bending display of musicianship" but I just say I love it. Slomo Drags EP is available now everywhere and waiting to lodge itself in your heart."
