New Slumgum Album!

New Slumgum Album!

Slumgum’s 2011 Release “Quardboard Flavored Fiber” is available online at iTunes, Amazon, and directly from our label Accretions.

“With their new album, Slumgum creates an intricate mesh of vibrant acoustic sounds, woven into pieces which are at times dense and full of energy … and at others much more refined. What is consistent throughout however is their clever use of space, and how instruments continually interact with each other … on five of the shorter ‘Big Fun’ pieces, they demonstrate just how extensive their range is, from the almost rock slant of ‘New Ruckus’ to the peaceful and ethereal ‘Natural Liberation’ to the more contrasted and experimental ‘Buzz Saw Flower Blossom’ … ‘Quardboard Flavored Fiber’ is a pretty impressive piece of work all round. Feeling at times pretty classic in its format, yet infused with very contemporary energy and vision, it is at once fresh and imaginative, and is yet another fine addition of the Accretions catalogue.”

This month is shaping up with some exciting things happening.

I am very excited to play at the Troubadour with Sarah Ault on 8/11.  Unfortunately if you don’t already have a ticket the show is sold out completely because we are opening up for Christina Perry.  Also, Tears of the Moosechaser in hunting down some gig in Atwater Village later in the month, and also we will be playing at the Sunset Junction Festival on 8/27.  Slumgum is very excited for our Blue Whale show on 8/31 which will be a double bill with the Brad Dutz Quartet.  Slumgum is teaming up with Erin Breen, Tara Boyle, Argenta Walther, and Annie Bosler for an exciting night of new compositions.  Cory Beers is off in Europe so the Romanian Folk band Artisti Populari is on hold for the moment.  Timur and the Dime Museum just had an eventful weekend and are now hunkering down for their puppet opera at REDCAT as part of the NOW series in September.  More news soon……
