The sweat trickles down the small of your back, you lose your coat but
you can’t cool down. Can you believe this band is real? The Blind Shake
are going apeshit on stage, hammering out each song with perfect
precision. Their second full-length album, Carmel, is a double-barrel
cannon of a record. Riding the wave of their first release on Learning
Curve Records, Rizzograph, and a recent collaboration with psych hero
Michael Yonkers; the boys hit their basement studio to crank out this
coffee and pick-up football fueled, more mature, sounding record.
Recording Carmel in their homemade studio, the boys cultivated a sound
that captures their live aggression and heart, minus the smoke and
mirrors found in a professional studio recording. Each track attacks
your sonic sensory. Head bobbing percussion, straight line wind guitars
and cadence vocals move the listener into a frenzied motorized caustic
party fuck fest. Carmel is the DIY post punk, anti-noise-anthem
free-for-all call-to-arms. Carmel could be the best record to come out
of the vibrant Twin Cities underground since Lifter Puller’s
“Entertainment and Arts”. Hold on to your roos because you will be
tossed in a fit of espresso charged factory work pile up. The band of
brothers, the Blind Shake, are gonna make you sweat.
