My father didn’t talk to me for three years. Not a sentence. Not a word. Not a syllable. Not a hello, good-bye, how are you? Not an “I love you” for 3 x 365 = 1,095 days. Life is very short, and three years is a huge chunk of time.
As musical genres go, slowcore (or sadcore, if you please) had its share of devotees and detractors. Early Day Miners’ 2000 debut album “Placer Found” (Secretly Canadian), was newly reissued, remixed and remastered for vinyl in an expanded 20th anniversary double LP set, including more than 15 minutes of previously unreleased material.
