Slothrust
Slothrust
Slothrust is principal songwriter, singer, guitar player and unrepentant aesthete Leah Wellbaum, with drummer Will Gorin and bassist Kyle Bann. On their fourth full-length album The Pact, Slothrust constructs a luscious, ethereal cosmos perforated with wormy portals and magic wardrobes,demonstrating more clearly than ever the band’s deft shaping of contrasting sonic elements to forge a muscular sound that’s uniquely their own.The album was recorded in Los Angeles with producer and mixer Billy Bush (Garbage, Neon Trees, The Boxer Rebellion).Cultivating their potent brew of classically informed, soulful rockin the fertile Brooklyn indie scene, Slothrust released their debut LP,Feels YourPain, in 2012, followed by 2014’s Of Course You Do. The band expanded their fervent following via the song “7:30 am,” selected as the theme for the FX Network show “You’re The Worst”. Their 2016 Dangerbird debut album Everyone Else established the band asa breed apart, capable of serving up deceptively clever epics that veer satisfyingly between incandescent riffing and pop hooks, winsome anxiety and powerful heft.Throughout 2016 and 2017, Slothrust lit up audiences on sold-out headline tours, festival dates and support tours with Highly Suspect in the US and Manchester Orchestra in Europe. The band closed out 2017 with Show Me How You Want It To Be, an EP of of unexpected and inventive covers of songs by artists as diverse as Al Green and Britney Spears, Black Sabbath and Louis Armstrong.
Mannequin Pussy
Mannequin Pussy
A punk rock band whose music is emotionally raw but leaves room for emotions other than rage, Mannequin Pussy are also an example of that rare phenomenon, a band that moved away from New York City to make its mark. Mannequin Pussy were formed in 2013 by Marisa Dabice (vocals and guitar) and Thanasi Paul (guitar), who had been friends since they were children. The two began making music as a duo, but after moving to Philadelphia as they began refining their sound, they became a trio with the addition of drummer Drew Adler. The band released a debut album in 2013, Gypsy Pervert, also known as GP. The album received positive press in the indie-punk media, which attracted the attention of independent punk label Tiny Engines Records, who reissued Gypsy Pervert in 2014. Mannequin Pussy hit the road, touring in support of the album, and by the time they were ready to record again, they had a new lineup. Drummer Adler was out, and along with new timekeeper Kaleen Reading, the band also added bassist Colins Regisford, also known as Bear. The four-piece edition of Mannequin Pussy cut a second album, Romantic, which was released by Tiny Engines in October 2016. The album, short but strong at under 20 minutes, received enthusiastic reviews, with critic James Rettig saying Mannequin Pussy "possess the fury of a thrashing hardcore band and the intense beating heart of something more interior, and their ability to balance both sides of that equation has only gotten stronger the further they get into their career."
