Low Worker Equality is the creation of two best friends that have been indulging and collaborating with their musical passion for years. The two decided to put down some of their favorite creations into the recording studio, and put together this unique and feel-good album. The Slow Pianos, the name of the duo, have excellent chemistry evident throughout the album and likely a result of their years of playing music together.
The best part of Low Worker Equality is that it incorporates a wide variety of sounds and samples. The first track, “Navy May in Crimson Tide” for example starts out with a trippy, folk-like introduction. The song starts out with banjos being tuned and tweaked with spacey sounds in the background. The track eventually turns into a calm, feel-good melody. The vocals are also happy and melodic.
There is evident chemistry between the musicians, the music is always smooth despite there being a plethora of instruments and sounds involved. The Slow Pianos have a very unique sound, there are loads of samples splashed throughout -- like the table drumming sound for example -- but they all come in at the right times and fit in with the other instruments really well.
The sound of the album switches around from song to song. Some tracks move from that folksy sound to a more electric, rock type of sound. The song “ADDICTION 101,” for example, starts out with a smooth and fast moving electric guitar and a soft but also fast-paced drum beat in the background. The contrast between the different songs in interesting and make this album a fun listen.
While the production and composition of Low Worker Equality is clearly advanced, the guitar is somewhat more amateur, evident in the solos, bridges and riffs throughout the album. The guitar is by no means bad, but there is definitely no advanced guitar shredding going on. The vocals are the main focus and entertaining part of the album, usually pretty feel-good and emotional. The vocals are not too aggressive and make this a nice, melodic album to listen to.
This album is a fun listen. It’s filled with a plethora of tracks that change up in pace, sound and melodies. This album doesn't get boring, and these two musicians clearly have a depth of chemistry and time playing together that make the songs seamless, fun and excellently put together.
