Artist: SLOWEST LIFT, THE
Title: The Slowest Lift
Format: LP
Label: VHF
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"The debut release by The Slowest Lift (Sophie Cooper and Julian Bradley) presents a new chapter in the long-running tradition of radical English music duos. Originally formed via a commission from the Supernormal Festival, Cooper (an accomplished solo performer and collaborator) and Bradley (from frequent VHF delinquents Vibracathedral Orchestra) play a kind of gentle post-industrial psychedelia, with Cooper s lovely vocals floating over a collage of live and electronic performances. The songs are a blend of straightforward performance and eccentric bricolage, with rude electronic interjections sitting comfortably alongside delicate guitar and keyboard melodies. Zoviet France-like low-fi atmospherics compete with Cooper s voice for air on tracks like Crystal Fracture and Hi From The Skyline Swim, while the duo s surprising cover of Duran Duran s The Chauffeur deep on side two sneaks in perfectly, a mini-pop music drama reimagined as pure hallucination." - VHF.
