Shy, Low – “Hiraeth”
Get a load of all the stuff you can buy on this week’s RECORD OF THE WEEK blog!
SHY, LOW’s latest album ‘Hiraeth’ is a word without a concrete English translation. While evading an unequivocal definition, it exudes melancholy. Those who have attempted to define it describe the word as a mixture of homesickness, nostalgia, grief, and longing. You’ll get all of that with this release out now on SPARTAN RECORDS! This limited run of beautifully matched vinyl is available for order now, our favorite is definitely the ‘Coke Bottle’ and ‘Bone’ AsideBside with splatter…

Starting life in 2005 as a more or less straight ahead horror punk outfit, MURDERLAND has survived multiple lineup changes, paternity leave and the cruel, unyielding umbrage of early middle age, continuing to release music and sweat it out in Southland dives whenever possible. Over the years their sound has evolved, allowing for more diverse influences to shine through but retaining a heavy dose of the bands signature sound. PIRISH RECORDS brings you this release with either a classic ‘Black’ disc or the ‘Milky Clear’ and hazed version. Keep tabs on MURDERLAND as they have some tours in the works…
