New Tunes - The Blind Shake

Today brings us last week's new release by The Blind Shake, "Key To A False Door". It's being put out by Castle Face Records which is run by John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees fame and probably not coincidentally, the two bands are jet-setting(van-setting?) across North America on tour together along with OBN llls. The Blind Shake are offering up some seriously good garage rock, with themes in the vein of Mind Spiders(who also have a new record coming out in the next month) crossed with the aforementioned Thee Oh Sees. High speed action with a touch of Doctor Who thrown in for good measure probably sums it up best . This is a killer triple bill on the road together so start searching your couches for quarters and get out to a deadly rock and roll show. All dates below along with a link to Brooklyn Vegan, who is hosting a stream of "Key To A False Door"
