Shivas, The - Better Off Dead – New LP
While all their albums spent time in this mode, this one is more moody and slow than some of their other material. If you're looking for the garage rock stomp present on some of their albums (and live shows), look elsewhere, but if you really dug their more subdued material, this is another essential outing.
