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 love to do really slow songs! Tried some with 15 bpm in the past.
This is my first slow one at 50/90:

It is also open for a collab to anyone who wants to add some vcals.
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…
@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).
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.
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.
@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.
