The jazz/noise/drone band Sly & The Family Drone return with a new album called ‘Gentle Persuaders’. In the past the band has made some absolutely gorgeous records sometimes with Dead Neanderthals or with Colin Webster but now ‘ Gentle Persuaders’ is made by Sly & The Family Drone alone and I am happy it is because the band show what they are capable of.
The 15 minute opening track ‘Heaven’s Gate Dog Agility ‘ has some epic sounds that instantly travels my mind to some dark fantasy world where there are two evil races that are about to start some brutal war.
The music on this record evokes an atmosphere for the listener, it creates a dreamworld. ‘Gentle Persuaders’ is in my opinion their best work yet. The album was released April 26 on Love Love Records.
Tune in for some experimental sounds.
