The Shivas, the Beets, Awkward Energy

[GARAGE POP] True fans of the Shivas have already heard the songs on their second album a dozen times over, either through seeing the quartet’s sensational live show or by purchasing a copy of Whiteout! on cassette via Burger Records. Now, thanks to the Shivas’ new relationship with Olympia’s K Records and the extensive tour schedule the band always seems to be on, it’s time for the rest of the known universe to get caught up. At times, they feel connected to the thudding swirl of K’s signature band, Beat Happening—check out the low, Link Wray fuzz slathered on “Living and Dying Like Horatio Alger” or the organ-punctuated clamor of “Kissed in the Face.” Of course, given their chosen sound, the bruises of influence are always going to be visible on the Shivas’ collective person. That the band doesn’t sink under the weight into pure pastiche is a testament to its smart songwriting and rascally energy. This show kicks off the Shivas' national tour opening for the Dandy Warhols.
