I think a lot of bands get too comfortable with the music they're playing and forget to actually do something interesting. It's easy to call Shark Week a garage rock band. It's easy to say "drrp drrp Replacements Brian Jonestown Eric Burdon drrrrrp" and throw up a link. For a minute I thought of just calling this a Strokes record that doesn't make you want to fucking shoot yourself. Shark Week deserves better than that though; Shark Week is really fucking interesting. There's only 3 songs on this EP but each stands as a catchy example of how versatile and gifted Shark Week is when it comes to crafting a good 60's inspired pop song. Everything just seems to click here-- a great rhythm section, guitar work that pays homage to past decades while still sounding fresh, and a singer whose powerful howl will stick with you long after you turn this EP off. Check out their bandcamp page for a pay-what-you-want download of this album, and a list of upcoming east coast shows.
