Today is May the Fourth and you know what that means! It's the day that we celebrate Jawbreaker's famed tune, "Sluttering (May 4th)!" (What, you didn't think we would reference some sci-fi movie or something? That would just be nerdy...)
So, to celebrate, we're streaming a new cover of the song by emo veterans Kid Brother Collective. The song is off the upcoming Jawbreaker tribute record What's the Score out on Save Your Generation Records. The comp includes covers of Jawbreaker jams by Ghost Thrower, Lawn Mower, Save Ends and more. The album is out June 23, 2015 (vinyl in late July) and you can pre-order it here.
In the meantime, you can hear KBC's cover below as well as see the track listing. May the Schwartz be with you.
