Atlantic Manor – “Slow Drugs And Other Sorrows”

Album Reviews | Sep 2nd, 2009

Record Label: Do Too Records
Genre: Lo-Fi

Another slow, inconsequential album from these unpretentious sadsacks. Turtle-paced, looping instrumentation, minimal vocals, and some seriously long durations make this a very hard album to slog through.

If you’re in the right mood, though, its hypnotic repetitiveness will put you in a bittersweet mood. A tall glass of bourbon and contemplation on beloved, deceased pets may also help.

Bottom Line: The perfect musical accompaniment to an existential sigh.
Notable Tracks: I like the semi-upbeat one midway through the album that didn’t make me want to slit my wrists.
