This is Slopeside’s third full-length album and it does not disappoint. The album keeps you guessing after each song. There is a different sound on each song, keeping it interesting throughout. They walk the line between folk, blues, rock, pop, and a little reggae and it works well for them. On their website they describe their music as “Fleetwood Mac meets Tom Petty at a Pink Floyd concert,” which is an almost perfect description of their music style. They have been performing around Colorado since 2005 and they keep gaining more traction and recognition. The mixture of both female and male vocals makes a nice change throughout the album. The album starts off with the amazing song “Faded” and keeps getting better with highs and lows. “Ophelia” is another song that stands out on the album; the song is slower but so beautiful and reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac you could listen to it in any mood.

Instead, on the debut LP, Color the Clay, they are clearly working to create their own place in that legacy. While the band describes itself as “folk n’ roll,” the country influence is high in the Americana mix. John-Erik Priegel’s vocals strikes a nice balance between the hard life […]
languagelovemusic.com The cosmic side of bass music is where Amor Creador takes place, a ten-track trip of druggy, psychedelic glitch-hop. Less concerned with dance floor appeal than creating an ethereal aesthetic, Language Love laces most of the tunes here with otherworldly synths and exotic samples undercut by the obligatory bits of wobble. At best, you get the sitar-laced funk of “Dream Space” and the subterranean intensity of “Crush.” At worst? […]
