SHOVELS – Live in Philadelphia / Baltimore
Since May 23rd, Melbourne’s purveyors of psyched-out noise rock SHOVELS have been stateside for a tour through the US. Their trip is now nearly complete, coming to an end on June 18th in Northampton, MA. What does that mean for you? Get off your ass and go catch them before it’s too late – they’re in NYC today. We didn’t waste our chance to see the trio, as we were lucky to catch them in Philadelphia and then AGAIN in Baltimore a couple days later. At the same time, Shovels didn’t blow their chance to lay waste to an entire crowd of eager onlookers. The trio delivers their unique blend of psych and noise like a battering ram plowing through your front door, spearheaded by manic percussion while their songs progress cleanly and seamlessly right before your eyes. Their intensity is palpable and everything in the room comes to a screeching halt while these guys do what they do best.
Below you can find a slew of videos from both shows. The Philadelphia show is cut up into songs – the Baltimore show is one half-hour long video (and they play an extra track, “Arm Arm Leg”). Now please, dig in!
