Album Review :: Totally Slow :: Wasted Days

Totally Slow :: Wasted Days :: Self Aware Records

Totally Slow’s Wasted Days is 90s depressed indie pop mixed with early punk snottyness. Each track has an undeniable amount of hooks while always being filtered through a steady dose of distortion. Through out all these tracks there is a gritty energy that makes it feel contemporary to the pre grunge punk/alternative/indie hybrid music that was being created before grunge took over the world.

This album totally works as a whole and creates an atmosphere that separates you from your daily surrounding, but the stand out tracks are Acid RainThis Town, and No FlowersAcid Rain is a bit indie, a bit distorted, and catchy as hell. You will be singing “My love for you is like acid rain” for hours after you hear this song even once. This Town has a bit of rockabilly buried in the track and some super awesome synchronized clapping that harkens back to those classic Motown tracks. My favorite song hands down is No Flowers, it is super hooky, super gritty, and super distorted.
