Slow Animal

Revisit Slow Animal at The Barbary Oct. 19

Alex Karaba’s guitar tears like a buzzsaw through buttery vibrant pop hooks, while Dan Colanduno pummels the skins with determined ferocity. That’s what you’ll find on Slow Animal's latest EP The Other Side, an album definitely worth revisiting. The bonus is that they’re even better live. If you missed the duo’s performance last night at Golden Tea House or just simply can't get enough of them, then you'll have your chance this evening when they open on another solid all-ages bill at The Barbary with Twin Peaks, Tweens, and Public Access TV, which is presented by WKDU. The Barbary, 951 Frankford Ave., 6:45pm, $10, All Ages - Alexis V.


Speed Up w/Slow Animal at Toby’s Purgatory May 9

Slow Animal released their new EP The Other Side earlier this week. It demonstrates that the duo of Alex Karaba and Dan Colanduno can generate an infectious mood-driven piece of work. Actively noisy percussion-led instrumentation helps propel/articulate its emotive lyrical agenda. It’s that combination of enthusiastic aggression of drums and guitar with a somewhat grey narrative aesthetic that creates intriguing results. Speaking of grey, self-proclaimed “Sad Rockers” Olive Drab is also on bill tonight at Toby’s Purgatory. The group’s latest LP The Big Sleep represents a melting pot of varying temperaments spilled out on the musical canvas for all to see and hear. Lyrically playfully pop-punk outfit Ted Nguyent and Blue Smiley round out the bill. Toby’s Purgatory, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7pm, Free, All Ages - Michael Colavita
