On Saturday, September 13, 2014, the guitarist and vocalist half of Shark Valley Sisters, Rob Elba, cryptically posted the following status on his Facebook page: "Shark Valley Sisters recording today at the legendary Shack Studios with the semi-legendary Ferny Coipel. The plan is to release whatever we come up with on Bandcamp tonight."
The resulting work he created with his partner in this musical enterprise -- the formidable drummer Fausto Figueredo -- is a three-song Internet release called Shabbos at the Shack. It is the second album by this heavy alt punk duo after its 2013 debut The Prince and the Punk. The set is a natural step forward from Elba's Holy Terrors material and Figueredo's body of work with Load -- an evolution, but not a reinvention, which is marvelous for fans of SVS.More »
