Get Shannon & The Clams’ "Sleep Talk" here now!

Shannon & the Clams Sleep Talk

Following their supremely fun 2009 debut full-length “I Wanna Go Home,” garage/surf outfit Shannon & the Clams seem to have really grown into their sound on their new album “Sleep Talk” (1-2-3-4 Go! Records). On “Sleep Talk,” singer Shannon Shaw showcases the breadth of her vocal talents–she’s got a unique voice, and seems to be able to bend and manipulate it to make it do whatever she wants it to. Her skills are best showcased on tracks like “You Will Always Bring Me Flowers” and “Oh Louie,” where she proves she can really wail. Shaw has a strong understanding of the benefit of sometimes showing restraint and sometimes totally letting loose, and often treads the line between brassy belting and tender crooning.

Shaw is accompanied by guitarist and co-songwriter Cody Blanchard, who contributes some really great harmonizing on songs like “Done With You” and “Half Rat,” and awesome strumming all over this record. The Clams’ songs also tackle a wide variety of topics, from the serious (heartbreak, murder, and exes who are “half-rat”) to the silly (quitting the cult you’ve joined, and being the “king of the sea”). If you’re looking for the perfect album to usher in the good summer vibes, this is the one.

Sunday 6PM: Haunted Continents, Eurisko, Frost Watson

Haunted Continents, Eurisko, Frost Watson
For the Love of Connecticut
6PM Sunday, March 6, 2011 Meet at the store / $5 Suggested Donation

Haunted Continents stems from a pretty simple idea: mix 50s bop and soul with 90s alternative. But it’s not like Buddy Holly playing Weezer tunes; it’s more like the other way around. Or maybe it’s a concoction of both, you know? Either way, the tunes are catchy, the guitars are heavy and The Loudest Year is thirty-one perfect minutes of fuzzed-out vintage rock and roll goodness … a perfect winter companion for heart-broken lovers and nerdy fan boys through out the land.


Eurisko is a 5-piece rock band from the greater New Haven/Waterbury area that formed in early 2010. Since their inception they have developed a sound soaked in whiskey, multi-layered guitar riffs, and grim lyrics. Influenced primarily by folk and indie rock, Eurisko’s music spans from quickly paced melodic ballads to deep, creeping songs carrying shipments of woe. Combining three guitars, bass, and drums, Eurisko sets the scene for the dynamic narratives that characterize their unique style of songwriting. Eurisko has drawn comparisons to Tom Waits, The Decemberists, Murder By Death, and Bright Eyes.

Frost Watson have the sound of pop punk in the ’60s. They’re from PA and NY. Come check them out. Check everyone out. See you Sunday.

Yuck S/T, in stock now!

Yuck Yuck

If you’re looking for some straight up feel-good indie rock, this new release is sure to weasel its way into your playlist soon if it hasn’t already. Yuck’s self-titled album on Fat Possum Records is a totally solid debut, chock full of catchy ‘singles’ like songs “Georgia” and “Get Away.” Hailing from England, Yuck captures a really “90s” tone and certainly wears their influences on their sleeve (think Dinosaur Jr., a little Sonic Youth, or, maybe even Silversun Pickups), but they definitely take those well-worn paths and turn them into their own unique sound.
