Soulful Swinger from Shannon & the Clams

ShannonAndTheClams1I’m so excited for both Hardly Art and Shannon & the Clams! The two have joined up to release the next record from Shannon and her posse, titled Dreams in the Rat House; it comes out on the label on May 21st.  I’ve long enjoyed Shannon’s work, and not just with the Clams, but with the other projects she’s taken a liking to throughout the years, such as Hunx.  This tune illustrates her penchant for tossing her raspy voice into the mix on an otherwise soul-influenced track; she’s definitely gritty, but also has an incredible range.  I think this is my favorite union of the year so far!
