depart family trees while on route to infamy as what has metastasized is quite the cloy disguise. deploy foreign wars to revamp terror support escape eyes that spy hands clasp doors to pry. you’re planting flags of triumph in mountaintops of trailoff to rewrite the narrative to keep the past elusive. should one find oneself a paragon of moral wealth to find peers to collaborate to better help to obfuscate and overelaborate the size you should become clear to ghouls you wish to hear the whistles for the dogs the gristle for the hogs. planting propaganda in the texts of bailouts reset the agenda keep the plots diffusive. yes you’ve been understood there ain’t no apathy when you amass a mob to burn an effigy. no we have not mistook your animosity for another ugly form of anxious energy. overcooked the goose ships sunk lips were loose beat street scram vamoose or else put up the dukes. take all civic pride erased gentrified what they can’t pervert will fully invert. as if you understood there ain’t no agony no quite the opposite we’ve grown affinity. you’re right there’s jouissance not in the day to day it’s found in atrophy in watching you decay. this ain’t the afterbirth goddamnit it’s the resurrection of every crooked line been swallowed everything we’ve been afraid of as one more salving for another round of knives to numb all our pain before our blood dries.

about

Slow Code acknowledge their existence in a crumbling paradigm. Desolate and frustrated with the state of the modern world, beseiged by the death throes of late capitalism, ‘Wastelayer’ roils and stews in the uncomfortable position punk rock finds itself within inside the greater cultural milieu.

Consider the Seattle WA-based trio’s new LP their sonic attempt to navigate the paradoxes of 21st century life in the macro. Josh Hill’s drums throb and pulse, Amy Peterson’s bass digs low and careens through Charlie Wagner’s slash and burn guitar salvos, his vocals a lament urging movements against the encroaching darkness.

These are desperate pleas for solidarity amongst the downtrodden, from the galloping blitz of “Consumption- Based” and its earnest demands for unity, to the slow burn anxiety of tech-based communications in the haunting ode to the late Mark Fisher “Semiascetic,” to the centerpiece “No Grandchildren,” a ruminative dirge on the perils of accelerationist energy accumulation and its havoc wrecked on the globe and future generations.

The trio returned to Anacortes WA’s The Unknown, a re- purposed early 1900’s church, to track the LP with engineer Nich Wilbur in October of 2017, followed by mixing and mastering by Oakland CA-based Andrew Oswald from Secret Bathroom Studios in November of the same year. Glory Kid is proud to present to you this 10 song, 40 minute long player.
