Slothtrop Music was founded in 1995 to promote and nurture independent musicians. By all accounts we've succeeded. Since then we've expanded to four divisions (Records, Publishing, Management & Consulting) and helped hundreds of artists while at the same time putting out some pretty great music. Take a look around, we're sure you'll find something you'll love!
“Come out, come out on the edge…” those are the words that begin the newest release from Austin based band The Please Please Me. It’s an invitation to climb into the microcosm created by this up-and-coming electro pop act. Filled with a heady mixture of affliction and joy Volume 2 finds the group poised to step outside of the indie rock box, exploring corners and crevices rarely plumbed in today’s music scene.
Slothtrop Records first ever Christmas CD featuring ten artists doing ten holiday themed tunes. The album has its share of happy music, and even has some nauseatingly sweet tunes. However, some songs in this collection invoke darker moods, moods usually referred to only in talk shows: "All I got for Christmas" does its best to fight the Christmas Blues the singer seems to be suffering, "Bethlehem" talks about loneliness, enuii and fading dreams while retelling the Joseph and Mary story in modern terms. Some Christmas classics lift the mood of the release in a good way, as they're done straight without being nauseatingly so, kind of like Christmas with the Family. We hope you enjoy our little record and have a great holiday season!
