The Sorts

More There

Slowdime

While staying fairly loyal to the stereotypical “DC sound,” the Sorts manage to add their own loose, jazzy feel. Loose is a good word to describe this record. This is laid back and mellow with a husky voiced crooner whispering in your ear, like a more soulful Karate. More There tends to wander off into the background from time to time, but it’s a welcome change of pace for these ears. Not as impressive as other recent Slowdime releases, but still a keeper. Slowdime Records, P.O. Box 414, Arlington, VA 22210
