Brooklyn and Lehigh Valley-based band Slow Warm Death is the current project of John Galm, who previously fronted the beloved math-emo band Snowing (and before that Street Smart Cyclist), but for this project he’s taking the lo-fi/garage rock route. Opening for Slingshot Dakota during their record release show at the Secret Art Space, their performance laid somewhere between chaos and, no… scratch that. It was just pure chaos.
The opening band’s job is to warm up the crowd for the headlining act and this band definitely executed their job perfectly. With frontman John Galm running into the crowds, guitars whipping a bit too close to this photographer’s face, to a bag of pretzels suffering a miserable fate, the audience couldn’t get enough of them.
This past March, Slow Warm Death released their self-titled album on limited edition cassette (now sold out) and digitally. You can stream the album in full below or download it (name your price) at bandcamp.
