Burger Records reissued Le Shok’s 2000 album We Are Electrocution, and I’ve been overloading my earholes with it a lot lately. 

Le Shok was formed in Long Beach around 1997. They released four singles, some split singles, and the wonderful We Are Electrocution LP. Short punk songs that get straight to the point (Todd Jacobs’ vocals are everything). I was lucky enough to catch a last-minute reunion set at Zebulon in 2018 (they opened for Oh Sees), and out of the four bands that played that night, Le Shok’s set was absolutely the best.
