Alternative Tentacles will be releasing Slim Cessna’s Auto Club latest album, Unentitled, in the UK on the 2nd April. Engaging, riveting, sad and humorous; demanding the audience to participate both live, and while listening to their albums – they have been tagged with every musical description possible. After more than a decade of working and living as Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, they have seamlessly created their own genre.
Unentitled is another high-water mark in the Auto Club’s career. The nine songs are each thoughtfully crafted with unique arrangements, executed with superb musicianship and fully realized through original, insightful and intelligent lyrics. Tracks like “Three Bloodhounds, Two Shepherds, One Fila Brasileiro” add creepy lyrical imagery to their jaunty choruses. “Do You Know Thee Enemy?” uses Cessna’s trademark call-and-response vocals and “Hallelujah Anyway” has Munly serving as an ominous narrator.
The instruments are drums, upright bass, pedal steel, banjos, piano, guitar, vocals and stories. SCAC is led by Slim Cessna and Munly Munly; and features members of Blood Axis, The Denver Gentlemen, Tarantella and more.
The band will be in the UK end of May.
