Fuck Buttons-Slow Focus

The electronic duo from Bristol with the name that is impossible to say over the radio (and who wrote the song that played at the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Olympics) have just released a new album Slow Focus. Steady addition is the driving force behind Slow Focus until the music ascends to geographical heights that threaten to topple over its own weight.

Towering and immense but never fearsome. It’s like if the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey threw an enormous house party themed around the world’s craggiest mountain ranges. Somewhere in the corner you can see Andrew WK raking a zen garden and somehow making it look hardcore. Somewhere that made sense to somebody besides me.

Few musicians actively pioneer this common ground between noise, dance, and post-rock and none do it with quite as much finesse. And even though we can’t say their name over the radio, we can still highly recommend their work.

It’s also really fun to listen to. How about “Fun Buttons?”
