This is the fifth proper album from Graves, from Portland, Oregon. The band revolves around songwriter Greg Olinís unique vision: blending accessible, melodic songwriting with skewed lyrics, breezy arrangements, a mid-fi (somewhere between lo-fi and radio sheen) production aesthetic, and Olinís earnest guy-next-door vocal delivery. On this outing Graves spices up the mix with tints of soul, latin and Cambodian rock. Recorded on Spring evenings with friends at Olinís home studio, the album comfortably reflects Gravesí signature disheveled, laid back sound, but the instrumentation is anything but lazy. Thereís percussion in spades, Pop-ballad ďba-da-baĒ female backups,and organ flourishes, but the secret weapon in Seldom Slumber may be the cache of mellow grooves. The rhythm section hits an appealingly amateurish Motown stride and rides it through the much of tracklist. The band includes Cory Gray (Norfolk & Western, Desert City Soundtrack) and (Left Handed, Knw-Yr-Own label artist) Nate Ashley as well as the usual a smattering of Portland indie ninjas, including Amanda Lawrence (Norfolk and Western, Loch Lomond), Kyle Field (Little Wings), Brian Wright, and Tommy McDonald.
