Slothrust – “of Course You Do” – [Ba Da Bing]
Leah Wellbaum proves how awesome a rock band can be when it is fronted by a female. She plays a mean guitar and Casio, writes and sings with a distinctive and clear voice, and is accompanied nicely by her trio-mates Kyle Bann on bass and Will Gorin on percussion. This album is full of fast-paced garage goodness changed up nicely with slower segments, and there are meaningful lyrics printed on the album sleeve to provoke your thoughts if you so desire. This is a winner.
