Filthy Friends (Sleater-Kinney, REM, etc) streaming new 7″, playing shows
Filthy Friends -- the indie rock supergroup with Sleater-Kinney‘s Corin Tucker, R.E.M.‘s Peter Buck, Buck’s Minus 5 bandmate Scott McCaughey, R.E.M. contributor Bill Rieflin, and Fastbacks member/MInus 5 contributor Kurt Bloch (and occasionally Nirvana's Kirst Novoselic) -- made their debut last year with "Despierata," the song they released for the anti-Trump 30 Days 30 Songs series. Then they released the song "Love in the Time of Rseistance" for Quasi's protest/benefit comp Battle Hymns. Their latest release is the Record Store Day 7" that they just put out with their new song "Any Kind of Crowd" b/w a cover of Roxy Music's "Editions of You." Corin takes lead, and if you like Sleater-Kinney (or The Corin Tucker Band or Heavens to Betsy, etc) you'll probably like this. Listen to the new 7" below.
