Glaswegian prog-psych-folk band Sloth Metropolis release their album ‘Origins’.

It follows up previous EP ‘Move’, where The Sloth was forced to go flat hunting, but found a mysterious manuscript whilst clearing out his old house.

A concept album set 400 years ago, ‘Origins’ concerns an alchemist accused of witchcraft who escapes across the ocean, whence he lands upon an island where he attempts to bring about a perfect utopia, but is transformed into a Sloth.

The 10-track album was recorded at Green Door Studio by Stuart Evans and Emily MacLaren and is available via No Unicorn Productions as a bandcamp downlood.

The band – Alastair Milton, Lewis MacKenzie, Steve McNamara and Calum Calderwood – were aided by backing vocalists Nadia Palma and Randolph Edwards, and proudly declare (possibly in some sort of nod to Queen) that “no electric guitars were used in the making of this album.”
