Week Starter – The Shadow Mountain

Week Starter is our Monday column where we give you a new song to help you get on out of bed & help you power on through the working week.

Forget your coffee on the counter as you rushed out the door this morning? Don’t worry fam, we got you. Just crank up “Guillotines” by The Shadow Mountain for a triple shot of wonderfully scuzzy garage rock with riffs a plenty, lyrics about sticking it to the man and a sweet tambourine part to air tambo too. Most rock songs this overtly political tend to be either straight ahead punk (or RATM), so it’s a nice surprise to hear this kind of Stooges meets desert rock vibe joining the fight. It feels a bit like the stoners in shop class dropping Marxist theory on their peers, and if that ain’t a beautiful world I don’t know what is.
