So So Slow
Spinning Like a Dog
Norwegian band So So Slow call their music slow-fi. That seems to imply smart hummable pop. "Wrestling Dinosaurs" is quirky and likeable. The tune is indeed slow, but also special and with an adorable lead vocal. "Wait" is sensitive and country-tinged like Whiskeytown used to be. The use of a banjo certainly perks things up. The closing "Sugar" continues in this vein but with an added sense of sadness.
Like all the best EPs it shows a little of what the band are capable of and leaves the listener with an urge to hear more.
