Pleasure Curses 3

But recently, I was going to school at JMU and his significant other at the time was going to JMU and we met up and started making music after not really talking to each other for like 12 years or something like that. We’ve just kind of been doing this thing ever since.

After speaking with lead vocalist Leah Wellbaum and listening to their new album, Of Course You Do, we feel confident in recommending that you listen to Slothrust.

The name Slothrust originated from Leah’s obsession with sloths and the band’s heavier, rustier music.

He’ll soon be headlining his first US tour, with a show at DC’s own U Street Music Hall.

If you like your house music to mix elements of techno, dubstep, and garage, George FitzGerald expertly produces tracks with these elements to create a unique, cohesive sound. His new single “Magnetic” is taking over UK dancefloors and is expected to have the same effect in the US. Continue reading “Shows We're Stoked For: George FitzGerald at U Street”
