El Michels Affair featuring The Shacks
Dhuaan / Sha Na Na

Ahead of the release of full-length album Yeti Season later in 2020, Big Crown Records delivers a 7” single of psychedelic, Eastern-influenced funk from El Michels Affair. The first side is a crushing sonic experience with backing vocals from Piya Malik titled ‘Dhuaan’, and on the reverse is ‘Sha Na Na’ that includes vox from Shannon Wise of The Shacks. 

The Shacks / Brainstory
Smile Now, Cry Later / Runaway

A 7” single taken from the forthcoming Big Crown compilation album Dear Sunny…, consisting of covers of Sunny & The Sunliners classics executed by artists on their roster. Here, The Shacks energetically tackle ‘Smile Now, Cry Later’, while Brainstory dramatically reinterpret ‘Runaway’ on the reverse.

While you may know The Shacks best down to The Shacks opener ‘This Strange Effect’ being used in an iPhone commercial, this young NYC duo have enough about them to suggest they’re more likely to hang around than previous Apple picks like Steriogram. Their self-titled debut record features some fine songwriting pitched somewhere between Ray Davies and Mazzy Star, and singer Shannon Wise has a great husky coo that recalls Jane Birkin. Originally released in 2016, this reissue on Big Crown comes with a couple of bonus tracks.

NYC buzz-band The Shacks may have soundtracked an iPhone commercial with a cover of the Ray Davies ditty ‘This Strange Effect’, but they’re out to prove they’re not just the next Stereogram/The Caesars/Franz Ferdinand (oops) with their debut LP. Haze, dreamily produced and full of melodies jacked from the Roy Orbison songbook, might just have enough to pull it off.
