Slothrust cover Britney, Black Sabbath, Al Green & more on new EP (listen), touring
Boston trio Slothrust have a new EP of covers, tilted Show Me How You Want it To Be, that puts their sludgy spin on songs by Al Green (“Let’s Stay Together”), The Turtles (“Happy Together”), Marcy Playground (“Sex and Candy”), Britney Spears (“…Baby One More Time”), Louis Armstrong (“What a Wonderful World”), and Black Sabbath (“Electric Funeral”) (okay, that one was already sludgy). It’s out on Friday (11/10) but we’re premiering a stream of the whole thing, which you can listen to below.
Slothrust just wrapped up their European tour opening for Manchester Orchestra and, now that they’re back on this side of the Atlantic, will play some West Coast shows later this month. All dates are listed below.
