We’re very excited to announce the release of another slice of Slow Dancing Society brilliance. The sublime four track long player Fantosmes is now available on vinyl, tape, CD and in digital formats. The tape release is in collaboration with the wonderful folks at Dreamshore Tapes and all other physical and digital formats are available at the Slow Dancing Society Bandcamp page and all good third party digital stores and streaming services.
Following on from The Torchlight Parade Vols. I–II, voted as the best ambient release of 2018 by Textura, Fantosmes finds Slow Dancing Society expanding his twilight enquiries in multiple dimensions. Comprising four eleven-plus-minute tracks, the expansive breadth and depth of this album is tempered by its attention to texture and detail. Sullivan masterfully terraforms astonishingly vivid and robust soundscapes from otherwise fragile, ephemeral sounds. Whereas The Torchlight Parade Vols. I–II felt like a night drive through cities and suburbs, Fantosmes seeks to escape our earthly bounds, with a more universal, cosmic trajectory.
“More than a decade after the release of his first Slow Dancing Society collection, The Sound of Lights When Dim, Drew Sullivan continues to uphold the high standard of that debut with his two-volume The Torchlight Parade… an encompassing portrait of this distinguished ambient-electronic artist” – Textura on The Torchlight Parade, their #1 ambient album of 2018
“Drew Sullivan continues to confirm his status as a master of instrumental melodic ambience” – Long Live Vinyl (Wyndham Wallace) on The Torchlight Parade
