Shoegaze epics on the sophomore release from Samuel Chown’s Shmu, as well as a Shmu computer game made by Lionel Williams of Vinyl Williams
Shmu is part band, part surrealist music lab. And in the project’s second LP, SHHH!!!!, things get weird. Samuel Chown explores post-punk, electronic glitch, shoegaze, and psychedelia; putting together and knocking down entire genres in single tracks. It’s effervescent, distorted, and exactly the type of technicolor dream you need to take you these last hours of Friday. Listen up.
The Bundle also includes Shhh!!!! The Game: an infinite soundtrack. Inside the interactive space, each room encompasses a track. Explore through until the last track.
