SHIVERS, THE: In the Morning: 2 x LP

Not-so-subtle hints of early Velvet Underground permeate throughout the four sides here, along with maybe a more-together Vaselines and the artier fringes of singer/songwriter-land. When it’s at its best, the songs are haunting, introspective and, yes, beautiful. Sunday morning music for those times when Johann Bach is a bit too old school.
