Shamir





New Surprise Shamir LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

While we were already expecting a new 7" single release from Shamir today, the fearless, prolific, multi-talented artist also dropped a surprise LP, Resolution, from the ether for our listening enjoyment. The album takes hold from the very start, with the powerfully empathetic "I Can't Breathe," before opening the door for a much-needed look inward, for both the artist and listener. Shamir's continued songwriting maturation is quite evident with his latest, no-hype-needed release. 





Weekend Warrior, December 15 - 17

If you’re looking for soulful, pertinent, lo-fi rock that simultaneously exhibits grace and grit, Las Vegas transplant Shamir delivers the goods. Bailey’s latest record, Revelations (Father/Daughter Records), traverses a diverse sonic spectrum. Digging into one’s introspective depths in free-floating fashion or meshing those smoothly sincere vocals with grimy guitar, there’s an innate combination of accessibility and raw power at play. With elegance and ease, the multi-talented artist delivers powerful messages, striking a chord with oh so many and creating a formidable force to be reckoned with. This Saturday evening, Shamir steps into the basement of First Unitarian Church, supported by the Canadian tandem Partner, whose bright brand of riff-laced powerpop cultivates a potently fun, “not taking yourself too seriously” relatability. – Michael Colavita

New Shamir LP Available for Streaming

A lot has changed in our world since Shamir Bailey’s debut full-length, Ratchet, landed via XL Recordings in 2015. In a social climate heated by derision on high, a pervasive distrust in information, and an undesiring malaise out-sourced upon youth culture, the messaging voiced on Shamir’s latest release, Revelations, rings all the more pertinent to our present moment. The new LP (which is currently streaming over at NPR and officially drops on November 3 via Father/Daughter Records) is the product of soul-searching; the result is a collection of burgeoning, guitar-laden, lo-fi pop that sets the stage for Shamir to speak candidly of his experiences, while also conveying the desire to do so through a musical vocabulary that marks a departure from what the industry came to expect of the young artist. As a moment of reclamation for the Vegas transplant, Revelations is a call to action to empower a generation of disenfranchised kids mangled by financial burdens, grappling with existential anxieties and self-hate. Finding one’s voice is a solitary task, yet the result is often surprisingly resonant within a collective struggle. The result of Shamir’s inward journey is a collection of bedroom pop bliss that sounds stripped down and vulnerable, yet wholly confident in their prevailing over adversity. - Josh Kelly
