If you used slang on the beach would it be loud? Beach Slang certainly think so because their new album, Everything Matters But No One Is Listening, comes courtesy of Quiet Slang. This is the Beach Slang you know and love, but a little more stripped down, opting for cellos and pianos rather than anything electric.

It’s the band that just won’t stop playing their songs. Loud and quiet and then quiet and loud again, Beach Slang seemingly understand two things about music and do a good job at both: they make those records proper, where they bash out distorted indie emo jams for all those among us who want nothing more than to access our feelings through hooks. Having the bright idea of reducing their songs to soft, acoustic reiterations, they made ‘We Were Babies & We Were Dirtbags’ under the Quiet Slang alias; they follow up that bright idea with yet another record of reworks, offering cellos and piano to brawny sad songs.
Is there any point, no, but isn't there any point? Why not hear the incredibly loud guitar twangs of “Noisy Heaven”, effectively a Japandroids song, as soft as a mattress topper? I’m sure we’re all on the same page here: go from the loudest heights of rock music to the sparsest revamps. Like Muse performing “Plug In Baby” acoustic, Quiet Slang is a bewildering but not unenjoyable proposition -- perhaps best left to those who live and breathe this band already, though.
