about

“In his innovative new spoken word poetry project, Slow Dancing with Bigfoot – a hybrid collaborative album/book scored by the ethereal music of the father/son duo STREAKING IN TONGUES – two-time Upper Peninsula poet laureate Marty Achatz interrogates the parameters of myth and of monster and, in doing so, finds a way to imbue both with such an achingly fragile humanity.”
-Matthew Gavin Frank, author of Flight of the Diamond Smugglers

“Undeniably affectionate and often beautiful. Note-perfect. 5-Stars.”
-Indie Shark, Pick of the Week and Album of the Year Nomination

“If you’re a fan of David Lynch films (or his music, did you know he makes music?), Slow Dancing with Bigfoot might be for you. There’s an almost punk sensibility to the thing. Not punk in the boots and braces kind of way, but in the ‘we’re getting away with something ridiculous, but it’s working.’ It’s the kind of insane balancing act that’s astonishing to see play out across the 15 tracks.”
-Entertainment Eyes

“Ambitiously hilarious, and yet deeply heartfelt. The guitar work and atmospheric, musical dronings work in tandem with Achatz’s lofty poetry and raise it towards something one of a kind. As often as the album could take low-hanging fruit along its journey, it never does and achieves great heights because of such lofty swings. ‘Elephants Are the Only Animals That Cannot Jump Or, An Elephant Leap of Faith’ feels like something out of the catalog of Sufjan Stevens. There’s a shared texture between Achatz’s poetry and the soft, intricate work of STREAKING IN TONGUES; the fact that the music is performed by a father-son duo lends itself to such sensitivities. There’s nothing like Slow Dancing with Bigfoot, this incredible little piece of poetry and music.”
-NeuFutur Magazine

“It's not quite the feeling of campfire stories, but it's like making up tales with friends at sunset on a summer day. The album feels very whole and complete and the sounds that accompany the lyrics only help emphasize that kind of kaleidoscopic vision of this fun little anomaly. For something that tells the various stories of a famous mythological figure, it's one of the most human pieces of music I've heard this year.”
-The Indie Source

“There is plenty to love within Slow Dancing with Bigfoot, but the one thing in particular that never seems to leave is the distinct voice and writing style of Marty Achatz. His pursuit of an insider’s look at the maligned humanity within one of America’s most discussed mysteries could have ultimately fallen short, but Achatz never lets up and injects the fifteen poems with a great deal of compassion and benevolence.”
-Too Much Love

“This is one of the more worthwhile releases I’ve encountered during 2021. It’s difficult to envision a more fruitful marriage of music and poetry.”
-Medium

“There are a wealth of riches awaiting listeners. Slow Dancing with Bigfoot demands to be explored.”
-The Magic Pen

“If you are a reader of poetry and love folk-inspired guitar arrangements, this is an album you will enjoy from beginning to end.”
-Hollywood Digest

“Wildly charming. These stories will linger in your head. It’s a dance you won’t soon forget.”
-Daily Pop News

“Slow Dancing with Bigfoot is a gem.”
-Vents Magazine
