Music Review for Idaho Rockers Low-Fi ‘After All This Time’ Release


Low-Fi ‘After All This Time’ Review

By C.W. Ross

When I think about Idaho the first thing that comes to mind is the Boise State Broncos who have managed to become a major player on the college football scene. But after hearing the music of the band Low-Fi I think that has changed for me.

The band who calls the Boise, Idaho area home is comprised of founding members, Todd Sloan (guitars & vocals) and Josh Gilmore (bass) who split from the Seattle based band Spyplane in 2006 and moved back to Boise to form Low-Fi. The band added a drummer in 2007 and self released their debut, ‘Where You Are.’ Fast forward to 2010 and a drummer change (Kevin Alspach) and the recording of their sophomore effort, ‘After All This Time’, that was released in July 2011.

Things get started on ‘After All This Time’ with one of my favorite tracks from the release, “Last Transmission,” an up tempo track featuring some lively guitar work including a nice solo. I also like Todd Sloan’s vocals that fit seamlessly with the rock vibe of the song.

I also enjoyed the fact that the band’s music isn’t one note. Tracks like the alt. rock edged, “Idaho”, offers up a shout out to the band’s home state and other favorite places (Indiana, Louisiana, NYC) and the track, “Hey I”, with its sharp edged beats.

Review Takeaway: I like the ratio of music to vocals that Low-Fi achieves in the songs that make up their latest release, ‘After All This Time,’ with instrumental intros that draw you into the song along with vocals that takeover and keep your attention.
