Slothrust are releasing their third album, Everyone Else, at the end of the month, and they conveniently have a few spooky-adjacent tracks on the album to coincide with the Halloween season. Last month’s “Like A Child Hiding Behind Your Tombstone” certainly works for the occasion, and I’m sure taut lead single “Horseshoe Crab” could be worked in somehow, and their next single “Rotten Pumpkin” definitely fits the bill. It’s a rip-roaring quick hit that places Leah Wellbaum’s gravelly voice over some ferocious-sounding guitars: “Reach inside me, scoop out my seeds,” she sings. “Rotten pumpkin/ Do not waste me.” Listen below.
Everyone Else is out 10/28 via Dangerbird.
