After years of noodling around in his bedroom studio set up, Phil Miarmi, former bass player for Contact By Garvey, U.S. Rail, and The Adding Machine, steps into a solo frontman role with an impressive 18 song debut full length album. The album is a compilation of collage-like spontaneous recordings - you can hear the songs being written as they are being recorded - raw and unfiltered. They have a palpable immediacy. Listening to The World As A Slug, one can practically chart its slow and gradual evolution from lo-fi one-offs to more polished confident alt-folk pop. A monumental effort from an elusive bedroom-folk troubadour.
