New Releases: Total Slacker – Thrashin

Total Slacker are a Brooklyn-based band made up of members Tucker Rountree, Emily Jane and Ross Condon. The New Yorker calls them “part of the Brooklyn contingent of a sub-genre … shitgaze.” and The Village Voice calls “Front man Tucker Rountree manages to echo both Thurston Moore and Lou Reed with his half-sung, half-spoken lyrics about being young, broke, and in love.” The Sonic Youth reference is definitely fitting if you think of a poppier version Goo-era Thurston Moore. The band released their debut album, Thrashin, on Sept 26th in the UK and will now release the album in America in the new year (exact date tbc). I am definitely looking forward to hearing more from them.
