nEw Sounds: PowerSlut release ‘Go Fuck Myself’ on tubes of flavored lube


Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

Earlier this year The Lights Out released their latest album T.R.I.P. on a can of beer, and we all drank it up. Today, PowerSlut release their new EP, Go Fuck Myself, on tubes of flavored lubricant… and we’re unsure of just how we’re going to digest it.

Wherever we stick it, it’ll at least go in easy tonight when Boston’s preferred purveyors of titillating burrito-birthing, butt-plug-poking, MBTA-seducing alternative rock slide into O’Brien’s Pub in Allston. And yeah, those who show up get to choose his or her preferred lube.

“It’s really not as high tech as it sounds,” PowerSlut’s modest guitarist/vocalist Linnea Herzog tells us. “It’s just the Bandcamp codes taped to individually packaged things of flavored lube. Not gonna lie, The Lights Out were an inspiration.”

But where The Lights Out’s record was a mechanism to loosen up, PowerSlut’s goes a bit deeper. And it’s truly something everyone can enjoy.

“The idea is that listeners can go fuck themselves while they listen to Go Fuck Myself,” Herzog adds. “We thought a lot about having it be on a condom but then decided that lube is more inclusive for everyone.”

Coincidentally, The Lights Out will be joining PowerSlut at tonight’s party, alongside Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections and Ski Bunny. Loosen up that collar and listen to Go Fuck Myself, recorded this past spring at Mad Oak Studios and Converse Rubber Tracks, below via Bandcamp.
