Minneapolis bald-headed freaks knock out bold garage wail/spaghetti western-tinged surf punk with viscerally dramatic scare tactics

Head to Europe for April tour


Slovenly Recordings is hyped as hell to announce their inevitable teaming with Minneapolis, MN bald-headed freaks, THE BLIND SHAKE. This intense trio led by The Brothers Blaha (Jim and Mike, plus drummer/brother from another, Dave Roper) has been plowing through massive waves of reverberation since 2003, releasing a heap of deep records along the way, including a few collaborations with legendary space-punk, MICHAEL YONKERS.

Taking a more melodic approach than on previous releases, this 9-cut “Fly Right” 12 inch mini-LP is another sonic hurdle for the band, steadily alternating between bold, phaser-heavy garage wail (“Tar Paper”, “Holy Road”), trippy, spaghetti-western tinged surf-punkĀ  (“A Clock, A Window, A Pyramid”, “Diamond Days”) and viscerally dramatic scare tactics (title track “Fly Right”). The Blind Shake has forged a unique concept with their bizarre visual assault, instigating onstage behavior and a seemingly bottomless well of haunting songs. They recently completed a US tour with San Diego guru/legend SWAMI JOHN REIS, in support of the collaborative “Modern Surf Classics” album, and now focus on the new record, with a tour of Europe upcoming in April. US shows to be announced later.
