manacker Wow! This album really got me. Usually I listen to stoner rock or post rock but this is so good and with such a variety between pop, rock and alternative.
Leahs warm voice makes the songs even better. I like her punk attitude in her voice.
I cannot pick a favourite track. They are all excellent.
I listen a lot to music and this is definitely the best album with vocals I’ve heard this year.

NeoGreendawg Easily the best rock album that I've heard since The Future Is Cancelled by Captain We're Sinking. Reminds me of Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Placebo, My Bloody Valentine and even Radiohead without being derivative. Lots of different styles of rock on display here but somehow it's cohesive... A great album. From start to finish. Favorite track: On My Mind.

Richard Lewis Great guitars and a great singer. That's always a good combination.

Leah Wellbaum is a fascinating singer to listen to. Her tone makes her sound like she's singing slower than she actually is.

For example, try singing along to Birthday Cake. She makes it sound easy to sing, but it is very much not. She delivers some of those lines very fast, but makes them sound deceptively calm and slow. Favorite track: Birthday Cake.

bps A diverse release from my favorite band, complete with funny raucous jams and slower melancholy tunes. This album is a sweet, salty, and savory treat from beginning to end. Favorite track: For Robin.

jjj "...we could make a pact, but it would be an act, it doesn't mean anything." Favorite track: Birthday Cake.

Slothrust is principal songwriter, guitar player and unrepentant aesthete Leah Wellbaum, with drummer Will Gorin. On their fourth full-length album The Pact , Slothrust constructs a luscious, ethereal cosmos perforated with wormy portals and magic wardrobes, demonstrating more clearly than ever the band’s deft shaping of contrasting sonic elements to forge a muscular sound that’s uniquely their own.

Bizarre and mundane, tender and confident. The awkward duality of the forever outsider, rightly reclaimed as power. This is The Pact. Produced and engineered by Billy Bush in Los Angeles (the band’s new home base), Slothrust’s new album is a confident journey across 12 songs that oscillate between a quietly reflective tenderness and a slick, sleek confidence; balancing playful innocence with ballsy swagger. “This is the most fun I’ve ever had making a record,” Wellbaum confirms. “We were able to take risks. I’m saying yes more than no these days.”
