Keep It Slow

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Low Motion Disco practice what they preach on their debut full-length, offering 13 tracks of decidedly downtempo music -- but the term "downtempo" usually suggests something with a very different flavor from what this duo has created. The program's first real track, "Born on the Low Wind," is downright pastoral, and literally so: along with the strings and quietly thumping bass drum you'll hear birdsong, wind, water, and the bleating of sheep.

Things get stranger toward the end, with "The Low Murderer Is Out at Night" (which blends acoustic guitar, glitches, and a bizarre spoken word section) and "Low Italian Déssert (Try It Out)" (which places weird noises and an Italian vocabulary exercise into a dark and dubby atmosphere), and then at the very end they get kind of bland and generic. But overall this album is a lot of good, slow-moving fun. Recommended.
