The Domes LP

Slowmotions is songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Brassell’s solo project, formed in his hometown of Nashville, Tennessee.

His debut record, Quick Potions (2009), was a charmed descent into mania, a trip through fizzy synaptic connectors firing in the sleep-brain. Following the release, Brassell moved to Los Angeles, and the presence of winding freeways, telepathic winds and mountaintops shrouded in haze took immediate hold of his psyche.

The resulting album is the sound of these sun-drenched structures and meteorological phenomena, a 20-song surreal-pop odyssey whose title, The Domes, aptly conjures the architectural landscapes of utopian Californian design. Musically dense and vocally luminous, the album is a catalogue of experiences. As with Quick Potions, songs on The Domes bleed into each other through a rabbit hole of interconnecting transitional segues.

During his time in Los Angeles, Brassell has honed his signature guitar sound, playing, recording and producing with the likes of Susanna Hoffs, The Haden Triplets, Jon Brion, Fred Armisen, Belinda Carlisle, The Section Quartet, and many more. This year marks Brassell’s first as a composer, having scored the feature film, Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town (Christian Papierniak, 2016).
