Christopher Keach There were signs in The Pact that something like this might be coming, but the whole album is full of surprises Favorite track: Parallel Timeline.

cg For some reason when they announce a new album I always worry that slothrust will lose their edge on this next one, and I'm always wrong! sorry to every doubt, this album is brilliant in old ways and new. easier than coding a favorite song is choosing a favorite instrument, which is Leah's voice, sounding lovelier and better than ever 💙 Favorite track: Parallel Timeline.

Lute FP This band has been on my radar for awhile. Their 2012 LP was rooted in grunge and a taste of punk, while their 2027 covers EP showed a growth in production and musicianship. I always expected them to have a breakout from there, but somehow their brutally honest and ironic lyrics seemed to dilute the intensity of what I think they are capable of.

Everything they do is interesting, but this release makes me think they may have crossed over into greatness. I’ll check back once it’s released.

Julien Roy A promising soundscape is on the horizon ! I'm super curious to see how the new tones will open up more gates for the previous efforts' surf/grunge influences. Favorite track: Cranium.

I like them spooky And you're just my style Said the Leo to the Taurus And if you'd like to stay With me awhile I'll cover us with forest We can stroll across a magic land It's green and it is glowing Lay our bodies in the moss and sand We know and we are knowing And I don't mind Our strange astrology I hope we find You bring the best out in me Let's keep it lazy In the living room If you believe in miracles So would I But as a Libra moon I keep it so satirical I like those flowers And I like that vase The way that you combine them Your sense of color Comes from outer space We never could align them But I don't mind Our strange astrology I hope we find You bring the best out in me Michael Jackson never spoke to me Said the Taurus to the Leo All his hits are in a major key And my rising sign is scorpio But I don't mind Our strange astrology I hope we find The sun and the stars and the sea

about

ALBUM IS IN PRE-ORDER AND RELEASES ON SEPTEMBER 10TH, 2021

Leah Wellbaum has never been afraid of her own humility or honesty. But she’s never quite examined it the way she has now with Parallel Timeline.

On Slothrust’s latest album, bandleader Leah Wellbaum pushed herself to try and understand her own spirituality on a deeper level, putting a lens on the core wound of the human experience, the idea that we’re alone. With Parallel Timeline, Wellbaum explores the feeling of being trapped inside her own consciousness while simultaneously searching for a meaningful connection to the universe, and all the mysteries it contains.

In advance of recording their fifth studio album, Leah, along with drummer Will Gorin, sought to dramatically expand the band’s sonic palette. Slothrust put an emphasis on incorporating new production techniques and processes into the established Slothrust sound, resulting in an extraordinary amount of experimental demo recordings, many elements of which appear themselves on the final record. They leaned into risk-taking -- a freedom that comes with having been in a band together for more than 10 years, cultivating new sonic realms for each track. Leah sought to craft unique and calculated guitar parts instead of continuous bursts of wall-to-wall sound, and in turn delivers what will likely be considered a “how-to manual” for guitar playing in the next decade.

Educated musicians all with backgrounds in classical, jazz and blues, the band’s newest work once again sees Slothrust leaning into improvisation -- something that in the past has lent itself to the infectious energy of their live shows. Parallel Timeline, mixed by industry legend Billy Bush and mastered by Heba Kadry is a masterclass in balancing tenderness with the fierce guitar work Leah has become known for. With a distinct yet unified sound that blends progressive rock, acoustic and pop, Slothrust has never been more confident.
