New Music / Free Mp3: ENERGY SLIME – “Star On The Ground” (Experimental Psychedelic / Synth-Pop)

I like everything about this band’s name. Firstly, there’s, “Energy”. Who doesn’t like energy? I do, bloody hell, it’s partially what is fuelling this post. Secondly, there’s “Slime”. Do I really need to go into why slime is awesome? I will tell you that I’ve had a sudden urge to buy some gak or some floam.

Energy Slime is Vancouver’s Jay Arner, and his partner in crime, Jessica Delisle.

Here’s Jessica explaining how her and Jay write… “Basically Jay and I will be having a few alcoholic beverages after dinner and watching TV. Jay will say ‘pass me my sketchbook’ and then he’ll write down some psychedelic lyrics. We have a lot of fancy recording equipment like my 100-year-old piano, about seven synthesizers, guitars, etc. all crammed in our tiny studio apartment. Quite often the songs are recorded immediately after Jay has an idea. Each song takes maybe an hour or two to write, record, and mix. Then we listen to it a bunch and laugh and quote all the lyrics to one another for the next week or two until we make the next song.”

Pretty great track, isn’t it?

“New Dimensional” is the title of  the duo’s oozy 10-song / 13 minute album (you read that right). Sample or purchase the album from 7digital.
