“Like A Child Hiding Behind Your Tombstone”
Not only is Slothrust the greatest name for a band, and “Like A Child….” the best song title, Slothrust is also one of the greatest new bands out there. Listen to “Like A Child…” It starts out quiet with Leah Wellbaum’s beautiful voice, and then WHAM, the band kicks in and kicks ass. Slothrust is Wellbaum, Kyle Bann (bass), and Will Gorin (drums). The trio first staked out their unique strain of jazz- and blues-afflicted rock as students at Sarah Lawrence College. They not only can play, but their lyrics are so great, especially “I feel like a foetus, cuz my eyes are not opened.” I heard they are coming to a town near you. Go see them.
