Slowly Rolling Camera: Where the Streets Lead

Read "Where the Streets Lead" reviewed by Chris May


You might imagine jazz musicians are well suited to run record companies, for risk taking and creativity are fundamental to both activities.

Either the musician is not from the top drawer and their A&R skills suffer accordingly; or they lack the administrative skills to run a business enterprise effectively. ...

Slowly Rolling Camera: Where the Streets Lead

Read "Where the Streets Lead" reviewed by Geno Thackara


When you're not sure which street to take, why not take several and see where they all lead? The inability to decide might just turn into the strongest asset in the right hands.

For while it's partially true to assign the trip hop epithet to SRC, that shorthand does this trio (comprising, Dave Stapleton, Deri Roberts and Elliot Bennett) ...

Slowly Rolling Camera: Juniper

Read "Juniper" reviewed by Geno Thackara


If Slowly Rolling Camera isn't already working on a film score or two, then some director somewhere is really missing out. The Welsh outfit occupies a beautifully lush spot in the music world at the intersection of jazz, trip-hop and soul-soothing electronica. It's sweeping yet intimate stuff, vivid and emotional on a widescreen scale in hi-def. ...
