About this item
"SOFT ROCK, VANILLA FUNK, YACHT ROCK, there’s different names for the same thing. In the taste-conscious music world for years now people have laughed at the L.A.-sound from this era with its super-smooth, over-lavish, luxury-laden excesses. Yet this sound is everywhere these days, echoing down the years, influencing the likes of Midlake, Haim, Gonzales, John Grant, Ariel Pink, out to the more discofied sounds of Chromeo, Breakbot, and Todd Terje. And what was Daft Punk’s „Random Access
Memories“, if not an album entirely dedicated to late 70s L.A.?Our friends at the label ‚How Do You Are’ unearthed some of the lesser-known but still beautiful mood music of this period, by people who were often still starting out, or would write their biggest hits years later, but who surfed the West Coast wave penning some total gems. With this first volume of TOO SLOW TO DISCO they want to share some of the great acts and songs that made the mid-late 70s California scene so awesome. Even though this is not officially a CITY SLANG release, we helped the guys who curated this gem. Because we love the stories behind the music and we love the chills these tunes send down our spine."
