Slow Parade live at The Hummingbird in Downtown Macon
January 19, 2017 @ 10:00 pm - 12:00 am| $5
Slow Parade is Atlanta based psych-folk collective headed up by tune smith Matthew Pendrick. After nearly a decade spent soaking up the city’s rich blues and roots music scene , Slow Parade was formed out of the need for a new extension. Calling upon bassist Andrea Demarcus (Cicada Rhythm) and multi instrumentalist Paul Stevens ( Grand Vapids, Chamber Cartel ), Pendrick found a voice for the Parade in the pair’s deftly trained ears and nimble touch. Having played previously with Demarcus in her roots rock ensemble, Cicada Rhythm (Normaltown Records) , they found in Stevens a skilled partner with an ear for the surreal.
Slow Parade melts the song-forward writing sensibilities of a century of American music to a sonic pallet which splatters reverb drenched feedback over cowboy chords like a cool blade through hot mud. Having shared the stage with a diverse set of music makers like Mail the Horse , Parker Gispert (the Whigs), and Michelle Malone , the Parade is eager to keep rolling. A brief stint of dates on the West Coast this summer inspired their latest single Bangs, an end of summer gasoline fueled surf mambo that wouldn’t sound out of place blaring from the torn speakers of Roy Orbisons ‘65 Caddy. Bangs and it’s B Side, Jackpot! sees the trio pushing their hazy dazy folks rock out of the nest with the help of producer Damon Moon (Mail the Horse, Sydney Eloise & the Palms). Slow Parade is here to suggest you use the last fumes in the tank to park it at the trailhead
