This September some of our favorite 21st Century alternative rockers, Slothrust (whom we last spoke to in March of last year), released their fourth full-length, The Pact.  The LP has the band, who originally hailed from Boston, but have spent recent years in Brooklyn, and recently relocated to LA, continue to expand their sonic palette.  Like their last LP, 2016’s Everyone Else, Slothrust are moving beyond the realm of purely fuzzy ‘90s teen angst on The Pact, experimenting with pop music and even nods to ‘90s R&B.  Slothrust are currently about to wrap a US tour that will have them once again headlining a sold out show at Johnny Brenda’s this Thursday, November 15th.  Before coming out to the show, have a look at when we first met Slothrust singer/songwriter/guitarist/mainperson in October of 2014.  At the time the band were touring behind their second LP, Of Course You Do, and gearing up to play the hyper-intimate (about 30-capacity), upstairs, kitchen/bedroom, now-deceased room of Kung Fu Necktie.  In the time since they’ve returned to The City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection numerous times, including a date headlining the 1,300-capacity Union Transfer and previously selling out Johnny Brenda’s last year.  In the meantime (‘90s pun intended),  flashback to 2014, when Leah and I first met and we discussed Slothrust’s background in Jazz, George Clinton’s granddaughter, and a surprising fondness for Metallica.  Also, have a look and a listen to their recently released single, “Birthday Cake.”
