Sluice is the current musical project of Durham, NC musician Justin Morris. The band's latest single, "Centurion," is quite close to being a simple modern folk song, although at the very least a very artsy one. But as the song goes on, Sluice adds more and more indie rock noise to it. Plus, it has these drums that are very upbeat and make you want to bop around a little. And then the swirling guitar noise comes in and out like no one is able to control it even though they're really trying. It makes for a truly unique song made up of so many parts all smushed together expertly.
You can listen to "Centurion" below. Radial Gate is due out March 3 on Ruination Record Co. The album can be pre-ordered at Bandcamp.
