SH-SHAKES: Self-titled: Cassingle

Well, to this untrained ear, these dudes are doing a damn nice and authentic-sounding surf/psych thing. I mean, if you told me, dunce that I am, that this was from 1964 or something, I’d be like, “Huh. Cool.” So there’s that. And yet! My hypocrisy is boundless! For some reason, 7” vinyl is fine, full-length tapes are fine, but I hate cassingles. (And at four quick songs, that’s essentially what we’re looking at here.) Still, these guys are really good at what they’re doing, and this cassette’s limited to seventy-five copies, so if this is your thing, ya better jump on it.
