Review: Indie-Rock Supergroup Filthy Friends Does More Than Just Conjure Its Past

Review: Indie-Rock Supergroup Filthy Friends Does More Than Just Conjure Its Past
 

On this Pacific Northwest indie-rock summit,Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker joins R.E.M.’s Peter Buck in a band unafraid toevoke their signature sounds. Check the Reckoning séance “Any Kindof Crowd.” But the LP’s second half gets even more interesting. On “ComeBack Shelley,” Tucker seems to reimagine the Beatles’ “She’s LeavingHome” via T. Rex and Patti Smith; on “Invitation,” she nails anuncharacteristic folk-blues strut. Many songs ache with Eighties troubled-youthflashbacks, especially the Pixies-loving “Brother.”
