Hot on the heels of Shit & Shine’s ‘Total Shit’ album on Powell’s Diagonal label, the band return with a new three track EP, their
third release for Rocket Recordings called ‘That’s Enough’.
For the uninitiated, the Austin based band Shit & Shine have been creating mutant, repetitive, technofied noise for labels such
as Mego, Riot Season, Gang Signs, Load and the afore mentioned Diagonal since 2004.
It is always hard to describe exactly what each Shit & Shine release sounds like as they are a band who treats each record as it’s own entity and so their sound changes dependant on their mood at the time of making it, but whatever that mood is, it will always be something thrilling and uniquely original.
The three tracks on ‘That’s Enough’ EP (that clock in at just under 40 minutes) ‘sort of’ sound like what would happen if The Necks got trapped in a lift with the Butthole Surfers and Schwefelgeb for 12 hours. And after they manage to get out, the Australian 3-piece return to their studio to discover their instruments have been stolen and replaced by some fuzzy synths and a laptop - the resulting music they would make could possibly sound something like this...or in fact, maybe nothing like this?
15 ans d'existence et je n'avais entendu parler d'eux... Et pourtant ce groupe a de quoi séduire avec cet album tout ceux qui aiment le noise rock. Le chaos émerge d'une rythmique répétitive sur laquelle Gnod ajoute des strates torturées. Un long trip cauchemardesque à l'image du titre Giro Day qui clôture l'album sur 12 minutes abrasives à souhait.
Cet album donne envie de plonger dans la discographie abyssale de ce groupe quitte à ne jamais refaire surface... Triskellectif
