Araido is the debut album of Debris Slide, a Nottingham group with an abiding love for the great shoegazey tradition of refracting pop songs through walls of noise and distortion. They have a very thick sound, a near-constant cloud of treble-fuzz hovering above distantly echoed vocals. LP limited to 100 copies, on Fluff.
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 03 June 2015
In typical John Peel style we managed to play this entire record at the wrong speed. In fact it was back in those early ‘90’s days of my fascination with all things Peel when Fluff released its last record. Older people with long memories might recall that Fluff was the Leicester label that brought you debut records from the likes of Hood and Boyracer but now it’s back, older, wiser but still obsessed with noise pop.
Debris Slide are a bunch of ne’r do wells from Nottingham making a right old racket just like all those early ‘90’s bands who worshipped at the feet of Dinosaur Jr, Pavement and My Bloody Valentine. They make a tremendous garagey racket, barely pausing for breath with the only nod that anything has happened since 1994 being some wild and wicked Godspeed like crescendos. It would take someone with better ears than me to pick out tunes on every offering but when they do stumble across one as on ‘Bury Me’ (I think - I can’t work out which side is which) it’s a joyous and messy racket.
And again on ‘Aubrey’ (once more citation needed) they become one of the few modern day noise-gaze bands to at least hint at the thrill of early My Bloody Valentine. Noise, feedback and gruesome fun.
