45rpm 12" vinyl record
The second album by SHIMMER, one of the most exciting bands playing in Brooklyn right now, and something of a super-group. With 2 members of Palberta, Simon Hanes of Tredici Bacci and ex- of Guerilla Toss, and Paco Cathcart aka The Cradle, one might expect SHIMMER's sound to be a bit of a hodge podge, but the opposite is actually true. SHIMMER has a laser-focused sound and vision, frantic and noisy, but equally precise and complex. With SHIMMER, the visual component is equally important, and this album also exists as a "visual album" with an accompanying video for each song. And what can be said of the character named SHIMMER, which appears to front the band? An entity that appears in reflections and refractions, a visitor from another world? Or a being of pure light itself?
