UK producer Will Archer, who records under the pseudonym Slime, is about to release his album Company. He’s shared “My Company,” “Hot Dog” and “At Sea Again” with us already, and now the whole thing is streaming in advance of its Friday release date.
Archer’s upbringing was surprisingly devoid of music. His predisposition for percussion, however, comes from the rhythms and clicks he used to hear in his father’s coffee factory, which eventually lead him to the drums. That said, on Company, his background in drumming plays out more in terms of rhythm more than clatter. The album entirely comprises slow jams, each track sprinkled with echoing vocals, smooth percussion and ethereal electronic and string sounds. You can stream the whole thing below.
