We were more than happy to put out the Shivery Shakes LP, Three Waves and a Shake. And, one of the perks of having a label associated with the site is that our bands can do whatever they want…and usually we’re pretty cool with it. So, today we’re premiering the second video from the band’s great debut, “Swimming,” which is one of the song’s written by drummer, Marcus. It’s a pretty rad little video, and it definitely continues the great vibe from their record. Don’t forget, you can get your hands on that pretty clear vinyl right HERE. They’ll also be throwing a fun little soiree over at Rio Rita at 9 PM tonight to celebrate the video’s release, so be sure to show up and have a few drinks with your favorite bros.
As if two great bands weren’t enough for you all, you should go out and support a couple of great local acts getting ready to head out on tour. You’ve got to fill their pockets with gold, buying merch and throwing spare change their way. Shivery Shakes and Bop English are hitting the road, kicking off their respective tours with The Rotten Mangos, Texas Never Whispers, and The Inscape at Cheer Ups tonight. I’m still really proud of the Shakes album, Three Waves and a Shake, which you can grab right HERE; I’m happy to have my name associated with that LP. You can find all their tour dates right HERE, but if you’re living in Austin, head out and support all the bands tonight.
Having released their new album, Half a Native, Houston’s Buxton are starting to make some big waves all over. The group’s been around for awhile here in Texas, building on their renown live show…exhilarating and full of great pop sensibility. They’ll be bringing said live show to Holy Mountain tonight, and they’ll be joined by some of our local favorites. We love Shivery Shakes so much we decided to put out their excellent LP, Three Waves and a Shake (there are still some available HERE) and you’ll be remiss if you don’t catch their show. Opening band AMA will be worth your early entrance, so show up a little after doors at 9 PM.
Buxton also have an in-store over at Waterloo Records at 5 PM.
Free Week is here, and that means I should prepare you for the great show we’re putting on at Holy Mountain on Monday, January 5th. We’ve got Slow, Jonly Bonly, Shivery Shakes, Grape St. and also Young Girls. I’m going to toss out a little love to each band every day before the show, in hopes you’ll come join us. Also, don’t forget that our show is also a celebration bash for Pooneh Ghana, local photographer extraordinaire. Don’t forget to buy tons of records and t-shirts to make this worth it for all the bands. So, here’s a bit on Shivery Shakes. Read more
Okay, so due to my promise from Monday’s song post, I had to wait a few days to post the stream of the brand new album from Shivery Shakes; it’s titled Three Waves and a Shake. Why should you care? Have you read Nicole’s review? Also, the band’s been working hard in the Austin scene for some time, and the hard work pays off with their debut LP. And, you know that I care because I’m putting out this LP with our friend Dan over at Punctum, so it means a great deal that you listen to it. I’m putting up the Bandcamp stream, so you can donate to the band if you’re not into physical formats. But, if you are, buy it from me HERE; it’s still a few weeks away from coming back from the press, but I’ll have it out to you as soon as it’s back to me. Sit back, relax, enjoy our friends in the Shivery Shakes.
Ok okay, I know last week was really heavy with all my talk of Shivery Shakes and their new LP. This is the last time I bring the band up, at least for the next few days. Consequence of Sound had the privilege of premiering the band’s latest single, “Swimming,” on Friday. If you’ve caught the band live, this is one of my favorite tracks the band performs, as Marcus takes over vocal duties from behind the drum kit. It’s just another great tune on the bands debut, Three Waves and a Shake, which you’ll be able to get from us at Austin Town Hall Records or our friend Punctum Records. I promise; I won’t post about them for two days.
What’s the point in running your own site if you can’t promote the bands you’re working with? As you surely know, we’re really stoked to be working with Punctum Records to release the Shivery Shakes LP next week. It’s titled Three Waves and a Shake, and it shows their refined pop sound finally ready for mass consumption. The dudes in the band have been kind enough to share this little teaser album video, featuring snippets of the tracks and hotshot photographer, Pooneh Ghana. You can order your LP HERE, and check out releases from Ramesh, Young Girls, Literature and Grape St while you’re at it.
By now we hope you’re aware of how excited we are to be putting out the debut Shivery Shakes LP, Three Waves and a Shake; we’re putting it out with our friend over at Punctum Records. Yesterday the band debuted a new little gem that many have likely heard in their live sets. For me, this is one of those tracks that perfectly displays the band’s ability to harness classic pop structures, then throwing in their own little touches, like a some sweet whistling. I’m pretty sure listening to this song will enhance your day, so you better play it just to be sure. Feel free to be nice to me and order their record HERE.
We’ve tried to keep this under wraps, but eventually our excitement had to break through, with news going public Friday that we’ll be releasing the debut LP from Shivery Shakes in conjunction with our friends at Punctum Records. The album is titled Three Waves and a Shake; it’s scheduled for an October 21st release date on clear vinyl. You can Preorder the LP HERE, but listen to the tune below so you get a feel for why we’re so excited. It’s got a tight little angular guitar jangle, backed up by a solid bass groove, then filled in with a hook of a chorus. Sweet jams and sweet news.
