mp3 | shannon and the clams | gremlins crawl

released late last year, "gremlins crawl" represents the most recent work out of oakland, california's indomitable shannon and her clams. back in 2010, shannon and the clams released their debut full-length - in cassette form - i wanna go home, with the following year seeing their topnotch followup, sleep talk. steeped in the surf-rock sounds of the fifties rockabilly explosion, the band conjures readily evident influences in the form of familiar groups like the beach boys and the ronettes. lo-fi, garage-pop rooted in the style of the overwhelmingly nostalgic fifties can only yield the best of results. check out the stream for "gremlins crawl" above and snag the (right click, save link as) download here.
