slope's obsidian digs deep. slow motion frozen landscapes.  threads of light in darkness. cool blacks and greys and dark blues, mixed in with enough glow and warmth to maintain a type of subdued vitality. like a underground river with a strong and silent current, or a heart beating underneath a quiet exterior - it's what's below the surface.

slope's release is a natural fit for low indigo for several reasons. he's  one of the founding members of the closely related modern math imprint, a familiar collaborator with kline, and no stranger to vancouver and bc's west coast. slope, better known as dan solo to some, is also one half of sanctums - who's other half, corinthian, appears on two tracks and provides a perfectly paired video for the release.

including videos for each song by GIORGIO MAGNANENSI
written by michael red, mastered by beau thomas, artwork souns 

1 - why
2 - gwey from
3 - slow motion
4 - sirens

until the official release, here's a piece of the write-up:

'gwey from' is an expression on the current state of earth. it views the more destructive side, earthquakes, large scale catastrophe, violence and suffering, .....and the massive aching beauty of it all. a world dying, swirling and collapsing into itself, while a world is re-born. the sound of evolution in progress and an even larger hope. gwey is "go away" in patois. so the literal translation "go away from" is an example of the basic ignorance that brought this current world to it's destructive end, but also an example of transcendence beyond literal language and feeling the correct meaning (new ways in a new world).

label spolight in FREQ

FREQ magazine printed a label spotlight last september and somehow we missed it until now. the timing is actually perfect, heading into the new year - looking back a bit back at where we were at the end of the summer is good perspective. THANKS FREQ.
