    label: Release the Bats

    BROOKLYN PSYCH FOLK IMPROV UNIT, FEATURING MEMBERS OF THE VANISHING VOICE, MENEGUAR AND WOODS. ON THE 40-MINUTE DEBUT ALBUM "LOCO HILLS", SHEPHERDS IS SOUNDING MORE LIKE A FULL BAND. SHEPHERDS IS EXPLORING THE SAME ROUTE AS SUCH CONTEMPORARY ACTS AS BLUES CONTROL AND RELIGIOUS KNIVES HAVE BEEN DOING RECENTLY, TAKING CUES FROM 70'S GERMAN PROGRESSIVE/KRAUT ROCK, BUT WITHOUT LOSING THE INITIAL SNAKE CHARMING FREE JAM APPROACH OF THEIR PREVIOUS TAPE RELEASES. WHILE MAINTAINING THE VERY SPECIAL FEELING OF 'HERE AND NOW' LOOSENESS IN THEIR COMPLEX SOUND, SHEPHERDS HAVE CREATED A POWERFUL RECORD, SOMETHING YOU WILL RETURN TO OVER AND OVER AGAIN. MESMERISING EPICS FOR LATE SUMMER NIGHTS. DIGIPACK AND LIMITED TO 500.
