Grouper and Lawrence English have announced their first album as Slow Walkers.

Portland’s Grouper [above] has been releasing spellbinding records for labels like Kranky since the early ’00s, drifting between ambient, folk and more. Australia’s Lawrence English, meanwhile, is perhaps best known for his work running the Room40 label (sometime home of Keith Fullerton Whitman, Bee Mask and more), but has also been one of the ambient world’s most celebrated musicians for some time now.

The Slow Walkers project was first announced last year, with a teaser video [below], and the Peak Oil label (run by Kranky’s Brian Foote) have now revealed some details of its self-titled debut album. It will be released on August 20, pressed in an edition of 400 vinyl copies with gold-foiled cover. As for how the record sounds, it was “born from a mutual fascination with horrific depictions of the human present and future.”
