The Shivers are a band from the east coast (not Hull) of the good old US of A. They have a sound that is keyboard driven and quite soulful. They remind me of that Of Montreal band albeit less campy, and with a more Springsteen feel. I reckon they (or just mebbe the singer/stroke songwriter Keith Zarriello) has a bit of the Boss in him. His voice is quite throaty, and like I mentioned earlier, he sounds quite soulful. The keyboard stylings (taken care of by the fantastic Jo Schornikow) are also great and remind me of classic singer songwriter fare. The notes she plays always sound perfect and complement the almost blue collar, workmanlike songs. The album has a really nice analogue sound to it, and there is a disclaimer on the inner sleeve that tells you that no computers were used in the recording, mixing or mastering of this LP. Which is quite a good thing I reckon. Why does everything have to have to be touched by the reptilian gnarled hand of Bill Gates on this fucking planet? Anyway this record is full of quality moments. Like the brilliant "Love Is In The Air" which has a snappy structure and great catchy lyrics. Also a favourite is the striking "Silent Weapons For Quiet Wars" which is a delicious slice of The Shivers pizza pie. A lot of the songs on this, their sixth record, are quite nice, even the ones where Zarriello sounds particularly lovesick have a really textured, nice feel. This LP comes with a CD for those who have stepped into the '90s and don't own a turntable. An album that the E Street band would be proud of. Let The Shivers take you down...
