Cameron Austin A.K.A. The Shepherde’s, has released a new single. It’s great. Listen to it.
Analog Revolution Magazine got a sneak preview of Born to be Mild–The upcoming EP from The Shepherde’s–to review for our next issue.
There will, of course, be an in depth review in issue 5. In the mean time, I wanted to give some initial impressions (and link to what is, IMO, the best single of the summer.)
Born To Be Mild is the product of noted immortal, amoral giant Cameron Greggory Austin’s project The Shepherde’s . The Shepherde’s grew out of Mr. Austin’s previous project My Father’s Rifle , and while there are plenty of stylistic similarities, The Shepherde’s marks a new and better direction in his music.
The Shepherde’s music has to be experienced to be fully appreciated, but I’ll attempt to describe it (in order to entice you to listen.) Imagine for a moment what would happen if Jeff Mangum and the rest of the Neutral Milk Hotel crew got together with a loud and grimey punk vocalist. If that doesn’t sound like something you want to hear, you might want to check your pulse.
