Band of the Day (8.4.11) Shalants or The Shalants

4 Aug

The Bay Area has a scene and it's not non-Shalant with The Shalants


Band of the Day (8.4.11) Shalants or The Shalants

Nothing more homer love for home town heroes. Shalants are bluesy and ballsy and they hail from San Francisco. Their recently released self-titled album is that good. “That Good” means that you must tell your friends that Shalants are your new favorite band. Listen to “The Mercury Twins” below and you’ll be screaming for more. So I posted another track just so you stopped begging. Trust us and we’ll trust you. They’re part of the emerging SF psych surf, garage scene that includes some of our faves like Sonny and the Sunsets, Girls and The Fresh & Onlys.
