Boomkat Product Review:
Just in case you haven't heard of San Francisco's Thee More Shallows before, let me explain - they're a three piece band who make slowcore indie-rock somewhere along the lines of Low or Arab Strap injected with a little bit of Silver Mount Zion, and they've recently been signed by Anticon. That's that then, so it's nice as pie to have this, their 2002 debut album making a re-appearance on the scene, so just before the imminent release of their next album we can actually hear where the whole sound erupted from. It's really rather good too, the threesome of Dee Wallace, Chavo Fraser and Jason Gonzales manage to drum up a very endearing racket and although it's very reminiscent of a specific scene it's so impeccably produced I find it hard to begrudge them that. The album bursts to life (admittedly slowly) with 'Where are you now?', arguably the album's finest moment, falling somewhere in-between early Mogwai, early Arab Strap and 'Trust'-era Low. Rising and falling gorgeously though, the musicianship and confidence of the band is what pulls them away from their influences and as the band move through the album they bring in much, much more - a violin/guitar stand off on 'Pulchritude', lo-fi drum machines and xylophone on 'Aerodrome'. 'A History of Sport Fishing' is a great way to dip into Thee More Shallows and is definitely worth checking out before the release of 'Book of Bad Breaks'. Recommended.
