The Shacks

The Shacks

The Shacks' self-titled debut EP. Available here on LP, Deluxe CD, Standard CD and Standard 10".

When you listen to the Shacks's self-titled debut EP, you might imagine that Shannon Wise and Max Shrager are much older than their respective 18 and 20 years. But when Shannon's whisper-vocals breeze through the speakers, you hear the youthfulness of their sound which then in turn explains the fearlessness of their songwriting. Both vaguely familiar and completely fresh, The Shacks are one of the most interesting NYC bands to surface in a minute. Since the release of their first single, 'Strange Boy,' which they recorded with El Michels Affair, The Shacks have been compared to '90s indie icons like Mazzy Star, Jesus and Mary Chain, and Broadcast. As good as those bands are, you wouldn't find a single one of their records in Max and Shannon's music collection. All these bands are drinking from the same well, just 20 years apart.
