Album Notes
slow/dynamite is not a band you necessarily listen to. The music is feeling as much as it
is sound, it is call to action, or inaction, depending on the moment. It is hazy recollection,
it is primitive rhythm, it is primal force. Drawing on a diverse range on influences, the resulting sound is familiar in an instinctive way, yet impossible to pin down.

The band’s largely improvisational creative process is indicative of the way they approach their respective instruments. Errin Delperdang [vocals/percussion] allows the music to inspire lyrics based on abstracted thoughts and fragments of images, conjuring a dream-like state in which consciousness is at best a question. Mike Quoma [gtrs/loops] plays with an intelligence and fire that in its most dire moments feels as if the world is about to become undone through sheer force of sound. Rounding out the trio, drummer Nick DeCarmine pounds with a focused intensity, deconstructing rhythm down to its most bare, primal elements, inducing an almost trance-like state in the other band members, allowing the music to slowly evolve over long stretches of sonic space.

Other recent projects include guitar-slinging in Glenn Branca's Symphony #13, collaborating with a number of contemporary dance choreographers, and drumming with
Boredoms as part of the 77 BOADRUM performance on 7/7/07.
