Slipslide are already responsible for one of the best songs of the year, 'Waiting For The Call' from their debut EP 'Four Day Weekend'. Matinee appeases vinyl purists with ths two track follow-up . Slipslide is Graeme Elston who some of you will know as a member of Astronaut (who have recently released an album on the Fierce Panda label, one of Britain’s most influential labels) but here he moves towards a sixties influenced sound. Many Matinee artists have their roots in the C86 scene, but Elston is a different kind of songwriter. His are the sort of songs that you can hum in their entirety after only two listens! That is not to say that Slipslide do not appeal to the typical Matinee crowd, only that it adds a little diversity to the label. There is little I can say about the music. It is straightforward pop music, played in a typical mid-sixties style. Elston on this evidence is neither the world’s most exceptional singer nor instrumentalist but he can sure as hell pen a catchy tune. And at the end of the day what else matters? This single should remind you of summer in these dark winter months. If you liked Delta’s album last year then be sure to buy this single.
