what bands that are currently making records and are perhaps relatively new might I like?
THey are fab. Female vocals sound like Hope Sandoval fronting Codine. Amazing
I got their album on emusic, some of the reviews are spot on:
Serioulsy get this now.
Speck Mountain is great
They've been around a while but are still relatively under the radar. There was a feature on them in the DIS slowcore week if i recall correctly.
I quite like some of their stuff.
The DiS week was cool but there seemed to very little in terms of bands that are still going or have only recently formed.
The Rifle Volunteer are very good. Not strictly slowcore, but quiet, miserable and brooding.
(the new one is less slowcore)
you might like flying canyon though. rough n'ready slow sad sounding american dirt farm space blues. the (i think) eponymous lp is a couple of years old and the guy behind it all killed himself last year but it's a great record and one that i think more people should know about.
Great Lake Swimmers beat a similar path, albeit not as well. All of their albums are worth listening to, but they can't hope to match the mighty low. They've got a new album out this year.
Mazzy Star are one of the premier slowcore acts of the 1990s.
Particularly the earlier stuff, which is pretty Slowcore.
I suppose Sun Kil Moon are pretty much the same band though.
but absolutely great !
http://www.myspace.com/timonium (the first two songs on their myspace are gorgeous)
Barzin is a good call too, particularly the first album.
