!!! Shake the Shudder (digipak CD, £8.25)label: warp
‘Shake The Shudder’ is !!!’s way of saying “shake it off and dance your cares away.” For them, the sound of protest can be a march or it can be a sick groove paired with some short shorts. ‘Shake The Shudder’ is a product of !!!’s DIY punk roots presenting a harder edge lyrically and sonically, while incorporating trans-Atlantic electronic music influences. The new record opens with ‘The One 2’, diving right into experimentation. “We’ve always admired this style of dance music from afar and were curious if we could add our twist to it, our twist being a plot line and some attitude.” Immediately segueing into the soon-to-be live favourite ‘Dancing Is The Best Revenge,’ which premiered on US TV show Last Call With Carson Daly, the record starts off with a bang and doesn’t let up till the closing groove ‘R Rated Pictures’. For years !!! have run the dance band gambit and become New York City legends. From their start in Sacramento to Brooklyn house party staples and now delighting festival stages from Primavera to FYF, they’ve cemented their place as part of the live dance scene - while others have drifted into the history books. CD with booklet.
