"Slowdeck deals a hand from the dark caverns of the off beat with their cd release Multiple Offenses (Waveform records)...a decadent symposium of urban...jazzy...discordant breakbeats and shadowy downtempo head spaces. With grainy black and white overtones of the film noir movement, the music of Lacelles...dubbed by those who must use labels as trip hop...mingles quite nicely with the breathy vocals and hypnotic lyrics of Vanessa Darby to create a clubby, urban soundtrack for the sensual and seductive. Lacelle's territory is electronic discordia -- dropping breakbeats and overdubs like gritty, Bristol bluecollar ballpeens, while the dark, poetic angst of Vanessa Darby's whispery voice lays the groundwork for some heady late night tête-à-têtes.From the opening..."Ladies and Gentlemen...What kind of shoes you wear - baby shoes?" Slowdeck...adds to their record of Multiple Offenses like a freshly poured pint of stout UK brew, inlcuding what could well be the hit single of the summer...Butterfly - Darby's floaty anthem to free spirited wanderlust. There's also the mind bending Hitchcock flavored, Scared Me (so Busy), a soft and edgey cinematic masterpiece.Take some time to slip into the music of Slowdeck, another important transmission from the Waveform label."

"...it might've been something like this.
"Multiple Offences" is a fairly somber but stimulating collection of sound "dollops". Trip-hop, acid jazzish. Many of the pieces run only two-four minutes, a couple even less! Which may not give one time to really let individual pieces immediately "soak into" you, but at least they don't overstay their welcome. Only the epic "Ill World" (a great rythmic lament) runs over eight mintues.
Other mormorable tracks are "Baby Shoes" (with a quick sneak visit from Paul McCartney, if I'm not mistaken) "Soft Hallucination" (we all know what that feels like don't we? ;) "One Two" and "Touched With Love".
This is a great late-night introspection, contemplation album; and while the parts may be better than the whole, but there are a whole lot of great parts."

"The UK's Slowdeck features Lascelles Gordon writing and performing all of the tunes with help on some from Vanessa Darby, who contributes thougtful lyrics and evocative, whispery vocals. Together their style is laid back, eerie and trippy. Track 2 "Ill World" is incredible as is their catchy "Butterfly" -- both of which feature Vanessa's smooth vocal treatments. Don't overlook this title folks. A five star debut release from Slowdeck!"
