ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A drawing of a VW van parked next a pair of palm trees at sunset adorns the cover of Slackstring's debut, a release that perfectly captures that late afternoon beach front malaise. It is the precise soundtrack for anyone opening a beer or burning one down when the work of it all is finally being set down for the day. Full of warmly wistful acoustic ditties, the whole album feels comfortable from the first listen.

There's a directness that's refreshing. The music hasn't been fussed with too much and the rough edges make it all the more dear to me in an industry increasingly obsessed with polish. A couple of instrumentals complicate things nicely and in their more tender moments Slackstring remind one of the bedroom pop of Elliott Smith's Either/Or.

At just a shade over a half-hour it's one of those perfect records to put a wedge between you and the rest of your day. Like The Replacements' Let It Be or Nick Drake's Pink Moon, both classic half hour corkers, it lets us grieve the workaday disappointments and makes us guardedly hopeful for what tomorrow might bring.

beach town lifestyle in catchy tunes
i heard them in a local pizzaria and from then on became enfatuated with the best chill music ever and listen to the CD everyday for a break from life.

Love it
Love this CD. Discovered Slackstring from The Collective DVD like everyone else. Now I drive to work with the CD playing, which reminds me that Summer is not too far away, and work is actually not that bad.

Plenty of soul and a lovely summer vibe.
This is the second time I've bought this album because after lending the first copy to my brother he just refused to give it back. Perfect for a cheeky summers day, or making bad days better.Respect and thanks to the slackers.

Pure Relaxation
Awesome CD! If your day was bad and stressing this cd brings back the smile on your face. Just lean back and close your eyes and you see the beach or Mountain where your mind can relax.

Where's Sunday Jen ?
Really killer music. Where can I find the song "Sunday Jen" that I heard on the Collective. If anyone knows e-mail me and let me in on it. Thanks, glennhaskins@ev1.net

Laidback music to cruise to
I first heard Slackstring on the mountain bike video "The Collective." This cd is similar to the music on that video, but more diverse. Some tracks like "Liquid Lost" and "Wednesday Morning" are greats and maintain the feel of the video; while songs like "Trouble Tambourine" and "Glass Bead Game" serve to mix it up. Definitely a cd worth owning.
