The Blind Shake

It’s taken a while, but word about the electrifying live show delivered by Minneapolis trio the Blind Shake is finally spreading, and with the release of their new album, Seriousness, they are now in possession of the ideal calling card. Caustic, angular post-punk act doesn’t get much better than this. Through the interplay of their dueling baritone and straight guitars, Jim Blaha and his lookalike brother Mike create an unnerving, taut and unpredictable degree of tension that would be unbearable if the ultimate release wasn’t so euphoric. Fans of Shellac, Unwound, Drive Like Jehu or Fugazi, meet your new favorite band. With Police Teeth, Mutiny Mutiny. HANNAH LEVIN
