the fine, distinguished men from slothbear are back with a new ep entitled cantor on which they just released via their bandcamp site. they have come along way since the first time i hear em a few years ago. back then they were pure fuzzed out pop, emphasis on the fuzz, and now while all everything i liked about em, initially, is still intact its definitely a more “accessible” fuzzed out pop. if you dig the likes a magoo – if you remember them, mid-era gbv, apples in stereo, sonic youth and dan bejar than you should find these gents from valley stream, ny to your liking. havent heard the entire thing as of yet, but have heard two tracks, and well, i dig em quite a bit.
