Noise Water Meat there has been a dearth of great experimental bands in the vein of Gastr Del Sol and US Maple since they went away.

SLP have stepped up and exceeded expectations. easily my new favorite band of the past 5 years.

alvarfj It's rock, deconstructed and reassembled into something unlike anything else. Punk, in one sense. Jazz in the other. Quite heartbreaking, either way. Favorite track: Getting Murky.

about

Still House Plants present their second LP FAST EDIT. Cultivated over the course of 2019, the album switches the combativeness of previous releases for bare intimacy.

FAST EDIT is a palette of qualities and curdled headspaces. Now living far apart and coming together only for intense periods of shows and touring, the band have come to rely on an archive of mp3s (quick recall overtakes stable long term memory). Written on mobile phones, dictaphones, and laptops, FAST EDIT cuts rehearsals and schemas with tight, raucous tracks. This is most tenderly at play on ‘Shy Song’ – a cut'n’chase piece, in which all sounds are ghosts of another. ‘PredikateD’ is a phone on the ground: the voice is air, the guitar and drums meld with the plywood and sand-bag structure, the seams exposed.

The taste of the record is captured in an intervention written for the cancelled 2020 edition of Glasgow’s Counterflows Festival by Frances Morgan:

‘How do you think we should do this? The song does something different now, puts the other foot forward. How do you know when it’s done? End on a verb and it becomes a command: run! Towards the next thing. Do – towards the next thing to be done.’

Praise for Fast Edit:

“It’s been a long time—a decade at least—since group energy has reached this level of gravitational pull from performance alone… [Fast Edit] practically bounces off the walls of the stereo field for its entire runtime.” - Nick Zanca, Tone Glow

"The trio, formed at Glasgow School of Art, have made one of the underground records of the year." The Guardian

"...a fractured, fractious thing, twinkling like glass in the light" The Quietus

"The ingredients are simple, but the recipe is a smash. Fast Edit is a real tri-Michelin starred affair of an album; guitarist Finlay Clark noodles Sharrock-style sparingly, whilst drummer David Kennedy hams staggering marches, and singer Jessica Hickie-Kallenbach fills effortless space with her Carolina Reaper-vocal drones. As this trifecta of sonic ideas simmer in harmonic discordance, therein stews a red-hot dish of sufficient potency to fissure anyone’s skull. Therein exists the indomitable Still House Plants." - Loud & Quiet
