Sam Chown, drummer/singer/multi-instrumentalist in Austin's hyper-kinetic duo Zorch premieres the first song from his forthcoming solo debut under the moniker Shmu today. The track, "House of Stares" is available at Consequence of Sound to stream/download HERE.
"House of Stares" showcases a much more subdued and dare we say "pop" side of the musician's talents seldom heard in Zorch. Throughout, Shmu's album Discipline/Communication is a melodic exploration into combinations of pop, shoegaze, glitch, psych and experimental rock into a cohesive and original whole spread across the disc's 16-tracks.
Chown wrote, produced, recorded and performed all instruments on the album. Discipline/Communication will be available June 5th on CD and download via Grand Theft Zamboni Records.
Label: Grand Theft Zamboni Records
Release Date: June 5, 2012
