Thee More Shallows

I have been anticipating what San Francsico three-piece Thee More Shallows would do next after a friend passed me some copies of their two previous albums , "More Deep Cuts" and "A History of Sport Fishing", a couple of years ago. Now signed to the ultra-cool Anticon label (13 & God, Themselves, Bracken, SJ Esau etc.) "Book of Bad Breaks is due out on April 24th and is supported by an extensive tour, which will again miss my town of Glasgow!.

Thee More Shallows sound has been described as dark, sinsiter and brooding, but it could also be described as atmospheric and beautiful, such is the quality of their sound. Hushed vocals mingle with melancholic chord chnages and some indie quirkiness that only American bands know how to do. They have the potential to fill the huge void left by Grandaddy and Pavement. Below is a cover of The Temptations "I Can't Get Next To You" from their stop-gap "Monkey Vs Shark" Ep.
