The Slate Pipe Banjo Draggers: Peeled Up For The Sake of Fruit Music 2012 LP



For fear of the band name being misleading, no banjo appears within the 22 minutes of "Peeled Up for the Sake of Fruit." But, instead, there's a good bet that some slate pipe does, which gives you a good indication of what to expect from The Slate Pipe Banjo Draggers' limited LP. The album itself is an enticing and frequently erratic wash of sound that welds field recordings and found sounds to industrial thump and weaving electro textures. Disembodied voices also rise up from the mix, mentioning delayed trains and Anthony Bourdain among other things. At its best, a darker, more urban version of Black to Comm's "Alphabet 1968" comes to mind, particularly on the skewed, stomping techno burner "Lion Cheater." – Ryan Potts, Experimedia
