New Shout Out Louds: Walls

MP3: Shout Out Louds - Walls

Here we are with a taste from a brand new Shout Out Louds record called "Work", out next Feb from Merge. I hated their first lp but "Our Ill Wills" was quite enjoyable, though admittedly it had no replay value for me and now only exists merely on a computer's shuffle function.

"Work" boasts production from the great Phil Ek and it shows: this song SOUNDS great. It's some fine production, seriously. The song itself is another story. I do enjoy the calming of the vocals but overall it's missing some umpf. Or zazz. Something. I am still curious enough to check to check this sucker out, but now I am dipping my feet in first, as this does not seem to be worthy a cannonball.
