This event is all ages
It took almost two years for all of the pieces to come together for Remember Sports’ (fka SPORTS) third album Slow Buzz. In the time that has elapsed, Carmen Perry, Jack Washburn and Catherine Dwyer have moved from the tiny midwestern college town of Gambier, Ohio, to Philadelphia, adding new drummer Connor Perry along the way. Slow Buzz is the latest evolution of a band known for its dedication to friendship and ability to carve out revelatory scuzz fueled basement tunes that make you want to dance.
Slow Buzz is a piece of music that centers around a break up and comes at a crossroads for the band. The record is the first official release under Remember Sports, a moniker that functions as both a question and a command. Slow Buzz details all of the deeply personal emotions Carmen experiences at the painful end of a good relationship. Carmen’s writing is diartistic and intimate; hearing this record is a strange amalgam of both melancholy and joy. Brazen and energetic as ever, Slow Buzz is a record that is a paradox. It celebrates both jamming with your friends in the same heartbeat that it does trying to move on from something painful and personal.
Recorded in Valatie, NY by Evan M. Marré (Russel The Leaf), Slow Buzz is the band’s first release as a solidified group, and fittingly their first record on which they had the luxury to experiment and expand upon their live sound. The result is a record that is expertly layered in its sonics: Slow Buzz focuses intently on all of the nuances of arranging and production that Remember Sports has fine tuned over five years of playing together. Slow Buzz is Remember Sports’ most ambitious record to date. Come for the high energy dynamism, stay to have your heart broken.
Slow Buzz is out May 18, 2018 on Father/Daughter Records.
