In January 2021, while waiting for FAWM to start, someone created a thread challenging people to invent fake musical genres. One person came up with:
#slothcore: “very slow (like 20 - 40bpm), dirty & with long pauses to simulate naps. Perfect music for that overworked college/university student in your life.”
For some reason the genre took off, and by the end of February we had 81 songs. I volunteered to organize the songs into albums, and we released “Slothcore Republic” earlier this year:
Today we released our second album, Slow /. The album is the first from a compilation of 4, honoring the loving memory of dzdandcunfsd, a FAWM member and passionate slothcorer:
All the proceeds from sales go to 2 sloth conservation societies in Costa Rica, and I’m also matching sales with donations to a music school that dzdandcunfsd was associated with.
