Slab/Floors is a compliation of live performances and weird outtakes that the band found rotting in an old chest at the bottom of the Cook Strait; the notorious churning channel that seperates the South from the North Islands of New Zealand. Some were recorded in an old concrete bomb shelter, another was recorded using a contact miked sofa as a microphone.
Incongruously named for the noxious work of laying synthetic flooring materials it does , at its droney muddiness, traverse regions that could be reminiscent of the wooziness induced by leaving the lid off a tin of glue for just a little too long.
Organs hum, violins squeek and voices break along the way. Don't forget to take your sealegs and please don't drink the glue.
