Dr. Beaf It's easy to be submersed in the notes and sounds pulsing, swirling and swaying. This album blocks out the noise and makes everything but itself silent. With the chop rhythms of the synths I feel like I'm lying in a bed of overgrown green grass as a helicopter flies over above ever so delicately cutting the sky in synchronicity with each pulse. Favorite track: Come The Morning Light.

Pete Srdic Strange as it sounds SDS's music always makes me feel like I'm the shadow looking back at my flesh body. Beautifully transporting, and I come back feeling like I've been breathing clean mountain air and refreshed. This gorgeous new album is no exception to his amazing catalogue. Stunning. Favorite track: Coming Back.

about

Slow Dancing Society’s sixth album The Cogent Sea is another absorbing progression in Drew Sullivan’s mesmerising discography. The album continues the submersed exploration of Sullivan’s ’80s influences while also drawing upon an incredibly focused and cinematic ambient minimalism. There are trademark elements from across Slow Dancing Society’s stunning, critically acclaimed back catalogue, but rather than being throwbacks they present a continuity of narrative that is rarely found over such a large body of work.

On single ‘A Clearing’, gently overlapping waves of synthesizer are suspended amid sustained tones, holding the listener transfixed before Sullivan’s trademark guitar sound gently brings the listener back down to earth, transformed. Second single ‘Pull’ is aptly titled, its droning radiance, warm piano chords and magnetic guitar figures pulling the listener irresistibly into its enveloping glow. This is Slow Dancing Society at his masterful, immersive best.

about

Slow Dancing Society Spokane

As with Brian Eno’s finest moments and David Sylvian’s ambient explorations, Slow Dancing Society music manages to dissolve its temporal markers and speak about moments removed from time. It talks to the delicious flaws of memory and feeling whilst never sullying itself with literality or simple documentation.
