Michael Slawter (et al) - Music Guide


A dB’s Repercussion Blog Guide
to the music of MICHAEL SLAWTER

Do they give every young kid in
Winston-Salem a guitar?!?
Michael was a prince to provide an extensive rarities collection for me to share here at the blog (see previous post). I want to return the favor — but also do you a favor if you don’t know the music he’s made as a solo artist and in collaboration with The Saving Graces and Slawterhaus 5.

Michael grew up in Winston-Salem, N.C. admiring The dB’s and Mitch Easter, absorbing their music and, later, applying what he learned while making his own. The two Saving Graces collections are superior alt-pop, and Michael’s first solo release, An Assassination of Someone You Knew (co-produced by Michael & Jamie Hoover of The Spongetones) is a waiting-to-be-discovered treasure.
