Slow Season release ltd covers 7" via RidingEasy Records

Central California quartet Slow Season release a new limited edition 7" today featuring cover versions of Black Sabbath and Cactus tracks getting the band's signature powerhouse pummel. Both songs are available to hear and share via RidingEasy Records' website HERE

While the band is currently working on a new album, they continue to make time for regional shows, including dates in L.A., San Diego and their home base, Visalia, CA. Please see current dates below. 

The remixed and remastered version of their 2012 self-titled debut album was released by RidingEasy in December. Consequence of Sound shared a full stream. Hear and share Slow Season in its entirety HERE. (Direct Soundcloud HERE.)

Slow Season's sound effortlessly nods to greats of the 60s-70s like Led Zeppelin, The Who, Black Sabbath, et al, without sounding like a caricature. Rather, as one can immediately hear, this is hypnotic, heavy, and howling rock 'n' roll that defies both musical and temporal categorization.

The Visalia, CA band -- Daniel Rice (vocals, guitar), David Kent (guitar), Hayden Doyel (bass), and Cody Tarbell (drums) -- scale new heights, while recognising where it all began. Having recorded both of their albums live on reel-to-reel at Tarbell's home studio, the band eschews the digital trappings of music today to give their analog sound its crackling, kinetic energy. 

"Working with the limitations of tape really pushed us to play our best," Rice says. "You have to prioritize your ideas. You can't layer too much on there. You also have to nail the takes. You don't get to go back and cut 'n' paste. You have to feel it when you're playing it. When everything comes together, it really shines because we're all playing together on tape."
