Good Cover Version: Slothrust does Marcy Playground

Pulp gave the world the song “Bad Cover Version.” But seeing as I’m a sonic optimist, I’m of the belief that there’s more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

Some of you may be too young to remember, but there was a time (circa 1997) that the Marcy Playground song “Sex and Candy” was everywhere. Seriously, everywhere, to the point that at one moment in time it was vexatiously inescapable. I’ll be honest, I haven’t missed hearing it. 

However, along ...

Good Cover Version: Slothrust Does Louis Armstrong

Pulp gave the world the song “Bad Cover Version.” But seeing as I’m a sonic optimist, I’m of the belief that there’s more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

I think we can all agree that Louis Armstrong doing “What a Wonderful World” is pretty timeless. But I’m pretty into this interpretation by Brooklyn’s Slothrust. Recorded live at Dangerbird, the trio’s version of the classic standard has a really wonderful vintage vibe, a nod to the band’s love ...

Slothrust announces new album + tours with Highly Suspect in the fall

Today, Brooklyn alt rockers Slothrust debuted "Horseshoe Crab," the first single off their third LP "Everyone Else." The band also announced a fall tour together with Highly Suspect, another NYC alt rock trio that has gathered  a considerable amount of buzz in the last year, and who delivered its best single yet at the beginning of 2016 with "Bloodfeathre" (streaming). The local date will be at Rough Trade on November 1.

Slothrust returns from SXSW to play Baby's All Right on 03.26

Bringing a technical touch to grunge-tinged garage rock, Brooklyn via Boston trio Slothrust offers a lot that a listener can latch onto. Lead singer, Leah Wellbaum, delivers her lyrics with angst, passion, and subtle sarcasm that permeates each song distinctly. Humor and dark themes coalesce seamlessly as the band’s personality is put on full display in front of spot-on musicianship. While the band has been a slow burn in terms of popularity, their 2013 album ‘Of Course You Do‘ reached many hearts, displaying the talent, charm, and uniqueness of this group. After three years, they are due ...

Slothrust tours with Cymbals Eat Guitars + opens for The Kills at Bowery on 10.23

Source: Deli Magazine NY

At the 2014 edition of the CMJ Music Marathon, Brooklyn’s Slothrust will be one of the NYC bands to keep an ear on (or two). Offering a very personal reinterpretation of the loud/quiet/loud sound of the rock of the 90s (but sparing us from the raspy vocals revival), their 2013 album ‘Of Course You Do’ has been a little bit of a sleeper, but allowed the band to keep gaining momentum and conquering fans with each live appearance. They just announced they are scheduled to tour with Cymbal Eats Guitars in the fall and to open for The Kills at ...

Slothrust unveils two videos + supports Ben Kweller at Bowery on 04.06

Few bands these days succeed in spreading their sound over genres the way Brooklyn’s Slothrust do. At one moment, blues and folk-infused verses instill a mellow, dull ache; the next, a writhing whirlwind of metal jolts and throbs in agony. The trio embodies the Brooklyn grunge reinassaince, and stands out with their versatility. One thing remains constant throughout: the beautifully bleak and haunting vocals of front-lady Leah Wellbaum, creating soundscapes of depravity, longing and darkness.
Keeping with their diverse style, Slothrust already released two unnerving videos in 2014: paying homage to their roots, they went full metal with the cover ...

It’s always great to see our Artists of the Month moving on to bigger and better things… Slothrust – who won our biweekly poll in September 2012 and placed at #30 in last year’s Best of NYC Poll for Emerging Artists – is about to release a new album under BaDaBing Records on February 18.
