""Friday Night: Holy Fiction, Finnegan, and The Shallows at Fitz""

"First up were the Shallows, a Houston-based four piece with a gritty, bluesy feel. Put more succinctly, they sound like the White Stripes and the Black Keys had a sexy baby. Yes, seriously. Far too few people were there when the Shallows took the stage, but nearly three-quarters through their set, enough people showed up that their voices didn't go unheard.

Their music, which is available for a free download on the band's Bandcamp page, is an ideal mix of spacey rock and grungy blues. If it sounds like much of it was recorded in a church, it's because it was - Houston's Second Baptist Church, to be specific.

The pipe-organ keyboard effect, which was recorded on a real pipe organ but performed on a keyboard during live shows for obvious reasons, made it feel like we were watching an episode of Memphis Blues, and the singers' similar voices (though the backup vocalist's is coarser) blended together nicely.

These native twentysomethings are years beyond where they ought to be musically and are eager to book more shows, so we're looking forward to watching them progress, though we aren't sure how they can get much better." - The Houston Press


Still working on that hot first release.
