The Shivers – CMJ/West Coast Tour Dates

meet stud, the shivers’ new mascot.

I’ve spent a lot of my time recently listening to the New York City based band, The Shivers. We’ve featured both their 2008 release, Beaks To The Moon, and 2004 release, Charades, on the site before, and every so often I go through a phase where I only want to listen to their music.

Keith Zarriello, The Shivers front man, has some of the most honest and poetic music you’ll ever come across. I absolutely love it. As I mentioned in a previous post, they do a great job of balancing the familiar with the unfamiliar both lyrically and instrumentally. Their song “Beauty” off Charades is one of the most beautiful and meaningful songs I’ve ever heard. Newer songs off Beaks to The Moon are fantastic, as well (especially “Lonely Road,” “Feather,” and “Love is Good.”)

The Shivers have a CMJ show coming up Oct 23 at Pete’s Candy Store, and shortly after will be heading off to the west coast for a small tour. I have yet to see them live, but hopefully that will change in the not too distant future. Check out their Myspace for the tour dates. And don’t forget to support this great band, they are among today’s best independent acts.

    I have an impression, that there is some connection between my mind and “mind” of indiemuse… :) I`m completily in love with The Shivers since I know them. But. I find Phone Calls just a bit better, even if Charades contains ‘Bauty’ – the best image of musical beauty ever. Or it`s just a matter of precedence, which one I`ve heard first.
    Both deserve for the highest rating, there`s nothing to pick on.
