Girlpool and Slutever are about to play a string of East Coast shows together, and to celebrate, the pair of pairs have put together a special split cassette. The tape is four songs long, featuring each band covering the other. Girlpool’s version of Slutever’s “White Flag” simultaneously gives space and urgency to an already perfect anti-anthem on boredom: “I just gotta get away until my head’s clear, I can’t create I’m not inspired here.” There is a jaw-dropping simplicity to the way Girlpool operates that demands you not just listen to, but actually hear, every word of every line. It’s effective and also radical. Slutever’s take on Girlpool’s “Blah Blah Blah” turns it into a classic girl-gang garage punk rager, pumping even more energy into a song that ripped when it was just guitar and bass. There’s also a new song from each band. Check it out below.
