ATH Records had yet another record hit the streets with Shivery Shakes‘ Weird Weather. Naturally, we should have a party. I was bummed to have been travelling when everyone was celebrating label mates Mean Jolene, so it was the key objective for my week to be out and about on a school night to listen to the dudes play the new record front to back. Antone’s was a lovely host. Click through for pics a plenty that includes friends Slomo Drags and Go Fever who were kind enough to also share jams and sell us more merch.
One of the first records we put out on our little ATH Records label was the debut LP from Austin’s Shivery Shakes; it seems like so so long ago, but now we’ve got something new working for you. The band have signed on to let us put out Weird Weather, their follow-up album…it’s slated for a late September release. Today I bring you one of the standout numbers from the LP, which has also been one of my favorite live jams as of late; I love the way it builds all the way, then has this huge breakdown at the end. If you’re into supporting the album, and you want a fancy copy on pink vinyl…you can grab it HERE.
There’s just always so much going on, I felt like I should throw in a small write-up of some things I’ve been jamming here recently. Word on the street is that the Daphne Tunes and Xetas LPs are done, Abram Shook has a new LP on the way..we here at ATH Records also have somethings in the works. And, other people just keep pumping out hits. So hit the jump to check in on Austin with me.
The boys are back in town! Shivery Shakes announced their upcoming LP, Weird Weather, a few weeks back, but today, they’ve finally shared a track for our listening pleasure. This hometown four piece has been wowing us with their weirdo brand of surf pop tunes for a while, releasing their debut LP Three Waves & A Shake way back in 2014. Since then they’ve been quiet, but begin their triumphant return, ironically, with “No Return.” Impossibly tight knit beachy guitar riffs crash and collide with shimmery percussion, grounding bass lines and Will Glosup’s fuzzy vocals. The result is a track that’s perfect for the summer; listening to this song, you feel the need to get in your car, roll down the windows, pull on your shades and start driving to the beach or any body of water.
Weird Weather will be out sometime late September on our very own ATH Records. Word on the street is that this will be the pop album of the year. Take a listen to the perfect summer jam below and get stoked.
