Hey! Thank You! – Shannon and the Clams

Do you love it as much as I do when you hear a song from a local band that just fills you with good feelings? I live for it! Music is so many different things to me and I get so many different things from it. But it is something extra special when I am filled with joy because of it! Shannon and the Clams have been able to do that for me over and over again.

Shannon and The Clams new album Sleep Talk will be released on April 5th on 1-2-3-4-Go! Records and from the sound of the first single it’s going to be a doozey!I’m not even the biggest fan of garage/surf rock but there is something here that has snagged a part of me and drawn  me in. It’s more than likely the raw and emotive female vocals – that gets me every time! But really, there is so much more! It is thought out, fun, energizing and yet takes one back to a time…a time…well it could be  any period of rock from the 50’s until now!

“The Clams provide a secret ingredient that bind together doo-wop, early rock and R&B, girl group classics, 60’s garage/psych, surf and glints of punk in a way that’s hard to get across in words.”

The Clams have criss-crossed the country touring playing with bands such as Thee Oh Sees, King Khan & BBQ, Nobunny, Harlem, Crocodiles, Fresh & Onlys, Happy Birthday, The Growlers and more and they somehow found time to record a new album. A really great new album!

These Bay Area native will be playing  SF’s  Noise Pop Festival for the first time at Bender’s Bar on February 25 for FREE! I want to see you there!
