'Strange' magic


I don't remember when I first heard The Shacks, but I recall buying the NYC trio's debut LP at Academy Records on 12th Street in 2018. Someone said, "If you like Mazzy Star and Broadcast, then..."

Somewhere along the line, the NYC-based trio (all in their late teens/early 20s at the start) called it quits... but only after recording a lot of music. The band's label, Big Crown, recently issued their previously unreleased songs (plus others that weren't on vinyl)

Lead singer Shanny Wise (an LES native) now fronts Fcukers... 

The above video from the Shacks for "This Strange Effect" is from 2017. RIP The Shacks!
