Slothrust, Yung (Back Room)

When: Tue., March 22, 8 p.m. 2016

Leah Wellbaum leads the curious Massachusetts trio Slothrust, a band that treats blues and country less as historical antecedents of grunge rock than necessary accessories to it. In her husky, biting voice, Wellbaum delivers arcane lyrics that snowball into big emotional revelations, while the band unfurls thick riffs over accompaniment that feels almost casual. Their fellow travelers from SXSW in Austin are the very promising Yung, a guitar-driven Danish quartet set to issue its debut LP, A Youthful Dream, via Fat Possum in June. Its first single, “Pills,” recalls the bittersweet grandeur of early records from The Twilight Sad, with the guitars released from clouds of echo and reverb and now coiled, snake-like, into striking position. —Grayson Haver Currin
