It took us one year to finally come back with VOLUME 2 of TOO SLOW TO DISCO. This time we dug even deeper into the sundrenched, relaxed-funky, smooth and megalomaniac Westcoast-sound of the late 70s / early 80s: from Singer/Songwriter-Funk, Yacht-Pop, Blue Eyed Soul to AOR-Disco. Tracks somewhere between delusion of grandeur and a mountain of Soul. Again there are "Hall of Fame“ honored Megabands like Hall & Oates or Michael Nesmith (from The Monkees) placed next to a completely lost troubled genius like Jimmy Gray Hall, who only released three promo 7 inches in his short life, that we just rediscovered. The relevance of this sound for todays music is easy to hear: in the latest albums by Father John Misty, BC Camplight, Andrew Combs, Liam Hayes, Silk Rhodes, the complete soundtrack of „Guardians of the Galaxy“ and even in the cocky sound of Austrian youngstersʼ Bilderbuch.
