Slothcore Republic Forever (SRF)

[avatar]
@candle

Alright, I didn't see this one in the forum, so I figured it was about time to get a #slothcore thread going. Shout out to the slow & sleepy, the dark & dirty & the ever-present need for a few naps. If that's your jam, then #slothcore is for you. Here we are a year or so later & I'm still blown away that this has become a thing. Seriously.

If you didn't know, #slothcore started as a joke, part of a "Create a new genre" thread in the FAWM forums a couple of years ago. I offered the following:

" #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, people loved the idea & it has become its own FAWM Genre. There's even a great compillation album put together by @elesimo with songs by some amazing FAWMers. You can check out the album here: https://slothcore.bandcamp.com/album/slothcore-republic All proceeds from sales of the album go to support Sloth conservation.

So, lets talk #slothcore. Post links to your #slothcore 50/90 tunes & share your Slothy thoughts with the community.

I look forward to the responses.

My thoughts... Slothy Thoughts is a great title 😂

My first of what I'm sure will be several more offerings this summer https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/479 It quickly became my favorite new genre to create and listen to.

@candle

@dzdandcunfsd, maybe that will be the tittle of my first #slothcore track this 50/90.

Stay tuned 😀

@pifie

tracks

I still have to make my recording gig better, in order to capture the low end of the amp!

@beacon

Okay, I went way out on a limb and tried my hand at slothcore. Give it a listen. https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/643

@elamis

@phlex

our first attempt at taming the sloth.

@candle

@elamis, that album certainly has a slothy feel. I love it. It's quite #slothcore

@fuzzy

Here's my first Slothcore tune of the summer!!
"The Use Of Teargas For Fun & Profit"
https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/679

[avatar]

Here's my all-time first attempt at making a slothcore piece! https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/681

[avatar]

These songs are amazing. Does Slothcore need to be instrumental-only? Asking for a slow, hairy friend.

[avatar]

@autoclamp no, there can be vocals!

[avatar]
@fuzzy

Lat year I did an entirely a cappella Slothcore tune, @autoclamp, so yes, vocals are welcome!

[avatar]

I love to do really slow songs! Tried some with 15 bpm in the past.
This is my first slow one at 50/90:
https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/675
Hope you like it!
It is also open for a collab to anyone who wants to add some vcals.

[avatar]

Thanks, @elesimo and @fuzzy!

[avatar]

I wanted to play too, so here's this:

https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/802

I don't know if it's *good* slothcore—it may be too energetic—but it qualifies (40 BPM), and I need credit for another song, so I'm posting it!

[avatar]

I can't resist to do another!
30 bpm

Here is my 50/90 slothcore. Zzzz

@candle

Just caught up listening to these #slothcore tracks. There's some wonderful songs here that everyone should really check out & enjoy. Finally just started working on Slothy Thoughts. So, stay tuned for some #slothcore from the Shadows…

@toms

I tried to write a slothcore tune! I have never written a slothcore tune! So, is this in the ballpark? https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/1341

[avatar]

OMG!! I am just now listening to @sapient's hardcore slothcore work of art and feeling all the slothcore feels.

[avatar]

would anybody here like to share a collab with me by contributing a slothcore drum track that i can build a song upon?

@elesimo Do we have to be signed in to upvote?

@toms I think so

Here's my submission. I always love doing this genre. https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/1578

@phlex

Here's ambient slothcore storytime.

https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/1589

[avatar]

First #slothcore track from me this summer is here:
https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/1594

It won't be the last!

[avatar]
@beacon

So some people thought my #slothcore song felt a bit fast, so at the recommendation of @elesimo, I brought the bpm to 22 and fix a few things and I have Sloths at the Bazaar - The Slothy Remix https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/1799

[avatar]

first #slothcore track ever. it was actually kind of tricky NOT to speed up and I accidentally doubled the speed lol... would love feedback https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/1803

[avatar]

https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/1710 from a day or two ago. Time Stretched Slothcore

[avatar]

No time stretch for this one: https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/2242

[avatar]

https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/2382 33bpm, key of G♭minor, lyrics: the meal was cooked before the bell rang.

[avatar]

has anyone heard from @dzdandcunfsd ? he has been MIA for a couple weeks.

[avatar]
@fuzzy

Yeah, @billwhite51; @dzdandcunfsd is still around and hopes to be back ASAP.

[avatar]

@fuzzy that is good to hear. i was worried about him.

[avatar]
@candle

@fuzzy & @billwhite51, so was I. But I know @dzdandcunfsd can't stay away from this awesome community. Plus, he & I always have this unofficial "who can write & post more songs during the challenge" challenge thing that we do (I'm not even sure how that started…). He needs to catch up 😉 Besides, I miss his noisescapes. They keep me focussed & inspired (as do many other FAWMer's amazing songs).

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]

@candle we were working in a collab and, the day after he was ro have added a final part, he disappeared. that was 12 days ago. he hasnt posted or naswered emails, so i have been worried.

[avatar]

Perhaps we should start a Where's Deez thread or compose a group Get Well Soon song... I know dzdandcunfsd has been sick and so conspicuously absent from the site. Last I heard from him was a week ago. I'll bet his notifications are full up by now.
@wolfkier , I'm tagging you because I know you're also wondering.

[avatar]

Oh no, I just came by to post a link to a song and saw the thread about @dzdandcunfsd. I do hope he's OK and taking time to take care of whatever might be more important than posting songs here.

Anyway here's the link to my first #slothcore song for this 50/90, "Quito". Hope you like it.

https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/2524

@candle

@gardeningangel1, I like the Get Well Deez song idea. We should see if we could put something together for him.

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]

I second the Get Well idea.

[avatar]

Maybe @dzdandcunfsd is performing a very extended play #slothcore song and his recent silence is just a very long nap.
We can hope.
@candle I wasn't sure if i was joking about writing him a song or what but if people are interested I'm in. It would give me something to do while I'm worrying. Sort of a We Are The World/ Fawm Is Down type thing? I feel like we should get Deez's blessing first, though. We'd definitely have to tag him as a collaborator.

[avatar]

I think I may have done #slothcore... I definitely did somethin'

https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/2743

[avatar]
@fuzzy

Here's my first Slothcore track of the summer!
"72 Hour Hold (5150)".
https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/2856

[avatar]

Came here from your track, absolutely down to give this a try! Are sloths allowed to play synths?

[avatar]
@fuzzy

Yes synths are always welcome!
The only rules are 20 to 40 bpm, some "naps", and preferably some kind of distortion (the "dirty" part!).

[avatar]
@candle

@gardeningangel1, I like the idea if you're game. Sounds like @tuneslayer is also interested. And yes, we can ask Deez for his blessing, but knowing him: he'd be all over it 😄 You're right tho, it would give us something to do as we worry about him.

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]

This has one kind of an interrupted nap... I think it counts:

https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/3043

[avatar]

https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/3115 I took a nap holding the pitch wheel :)

[avatar]

I planned to make at least 1 Slothcore track this 5090 and just got it done.
