Glory Kid Ltd. presents the debut offering from Seattle, Washington’s Slow Code for release on cassette and digital formats. Influenced by the pioneering sounds of ’90s post-hardcore, the Marketable Skills EP presents a direct approach to songwriting as the band makes their way through their debut offering.
The five songs balance dissonance and accessibility not unlike their predecessors in Self Defense Family, Lungfish, Fugazi, and Unwound. They could easily be placed on a mixtape alongside any of those artists. Marketable Skills is due December 18.
Marketable Skills was engineered, mixed and mastered by Nich Wilbur at The Unknown in Anacortes, WA. A studio renovated out of an early 20th century church. This record was tracked on 2-inch tape. This first press will be on 100 limited, “Goldenrod” colored cassettes. Comes with a download card, full color 3 panel J-cards. Preorders also comes with a 12-inch x 12-inch silkscreen print of the cover art. Which will be stamped and numbered.
