Slanted brings lo-fi indie rock to Baby's All Right on 8.4

Recorded in basements and bedrooms, Prang Wince is the most recent release from New York-based, slacker-folk project Slanted, fronted by Casey Weissbuch, who previously worked with Diarrhea Planet, Colleen Green, and Mitski. The EP comes with a lyricism and tonal quality that matches early indie legends Modest Mouse, but with an intensely lo-fi twist, and Casey's signature, muted vocals. Second track “Dream” (streaming below) is built on a crooked guitar line and a delicately addictive melody, and plods towards a distorted, reverbing guitar solo that melts into the following track (“Opening Number”), a more upbeat, fuzz-driven number. Slanted's next show, alongside Rozwell KidChris Farren, and Great Grandpa, will be at Baby’s All Right on August 4th. - Lilly Milman, photograph by Julia Bee


Slanted has angst to spare on "Desire for Lust"

Desire for Lust is the soundtrack for a night alone in your bedroom when it all hits you. It’s the music that kicks in after a slammed door and holds your hand while you walk home in the rain. There’s a sense of catharsis here, but Slanted is anything but enchanted. As the title suggests, there’s a sense of longing that carries this EP. Not even a longing, but a longing for a longing, a want to want, an unfulfilled wish to look forward to something.

Fortunately for the rest of us, the age of instant gratification means you won’t be stuck longing helplessly for this record, which is embedded below. -Austin Phy
