This single, part of a concerted DANIELSON FAMILE attack comprised of two additional 7-inches - one each on Kill Rock Stars and Sounds Familyre (lead singer DANIEL SMITH's own label) - and the Danielson Famile's new album, Ships (to be released in April on Secretly Canadian). The A-side, "I'm Slow But I'm Sloppy," a percussive heavy number produced by WHY?, is led by an insistent marimba and filled out by choral back-ups and some fine 12-string strumming from Why? guitarist MATT MELDON. Smith himself chimes in with his quaint, sing-songy chirp then actually belts out a few lines. The flipside, a remix of a Ships track, is a joyous, synth-laden call-and-response between Smith and a choir composed of his sisters. The seemingly unlikely pairing of The Danielson Famile and Why? happens to make solid musical sense, and shouldn't be so surprising: Anticon artist YONI WOLF, the golden throat behind Why?, is a longtime fan and his brother, Josiah, who mans the drums in Why?, has toured with the Famile in the past.
