Prior to departing sunny San Diego for the colder, hipper climates of Brooklyn, electro-noise-rock duo Tape Deck Mountain recorded their latest EP, Slow Salvation. Mirroring the band’s coastal (and cultural) move, the five-song effort “takes the listener on a dark journey through tales of love, loss, and death.”
The pair begin their aural adventure with the jarring album opener, “kellies”. Here, the garage-y combo of steady drums and ultra-fuzzy guitars slowly melt into one gnarly pool of random cymbal crashes and screeching feedback. Neither depressing nor brimming with joy, it’s a lightning-fast shot of manic energy to prep listeners for the emotional voyage to come. Download it below.
