slow swords

music for losers

best of 2013



Not content with merely a brand new batch of tapes, the insatiable Shawn Reed is releasing another two LPs, just in time for the holidays. Local Iowa export Goldendust make the move to vinyl, after their excellent tape, also on Night People, from last year. They certainly put their own twist on the minimal synth formula, imbuing it with a unique mish-mashed sensibility that puts them a step above other revivalists. Featureless Ghost also run in a synth-tune style, anchored by their double vocals, but look even further to darkwave for their inspiration. Excellent art as always by Reed himself - it’s Night People.
