Songs of Praise


Shame

By: Nic Stewart

Every now and then with music you’ll be blessed with that next best thing. That brand new sound that really gets you going. Something that motivates you on so many levels. Gives you energy to hit the gym, hope on a rainy Monday morning, or just something you like to blast in the privacy of your own home. This something is Songs of Praise, the debut album from South London’s post-punk quintet Shame.

These young lads from across the pond are brimming with talent and they truly have a sound of their own. They’ve stated in various interviews that they have been inspired by Eddy Current Suppression Ring, The Fall, and other Punk/Post-Punk pioneers before them. Now they are the future of this genre. They welcome you on the opening track Dust on Trial, “will you walk this land with me?” If you love experimental punk that packs a punch at all the right moments, pick up Songs of Praise and get involved. Top Tracks: “Concrete,” “Tasteless,” “Friction.”

They also bring down the house at their live shows. Almost literally in this performance in Philly:
