Electric Assembly are a London-based band formed in 2004. Brought together by a shared love of music by Velvet Underground, Animal Collective, Spacemen 3, Boards of Canada, Flaming Lips, Miles Davis, Sonic Youth, Can, and Boredoms, they experiment with elements from krautrock, country, psychedelia, drone, shoegaze, ambient, and electronica. The band's heroes are artists who take risks, break rules, push boundaries, make mistakes, experiment and inspire - artists who make music spontaneously and instinctively - heroic under-achievers, glorious failures and faded has-beens. Their new EP 'Slow Exit' is released on Dream Driven Recordings and contains five tracks, spanning a total of 44 minutes. This release sees the band build intricate arrangements of musical layers to produce a densely textured collection of songs. Playing live is where the band truly embrace the spontaneity of their music - songs can segue into one another, slowly developing trance-like into a more non-linear listening experience. Electric Assembly's previous releases include Eyes On The Wall EP (produced by the band and mastered by Kramer of Galaxie 500 and Shimmy Disc fame), the hand-made, limited-edition White Splinter EP, and Base Station Repeater - an exclusive track released on the BBC Radio 1 DJ Rob Da Bank-curated 'Omskbook' CD. The band also has a vast catalogue of unreleased songs and regularly post these exclusive tracks to their website for free download.
