SHALLOW END DIVERS, THE: Demo ‘11: CD-R

Seven-song demo EP from this Boston area band. These six dudes live in close proximity to my secret bunker location. I was a bit shell shocked at first since the demo came in a brown paper bag. Like, was someone’s soggy sandwich in this previously? Oh well, it’s what inside that counts. Noisy “Nuggets”-style rock that kicks like Tabasco sauce in your beer. I’m pretty sure there is even some kind of wild glockenspiel action on the second song! Heartfelt and brawny; looking forward to more stuff from these rock and roll daredevils.
