Shutups, The – I can't eat nearly as much as I want to vomit [Coke Bottle Clear Vinyl] – New LP

Regular price $ 25.00 $ 0.00

 From their masterfully titled, anthemic “Shit Opus,” to their growling, distorted guitar, Shutups could be effectively described as a group of anti-establishment California indie punks with a vested interest in encouraging capitalism’s implosion. Leaving it there would also be a disservice to the deliberation, complexity, and artistry in their music. The groups’ new album holds true to the distinctive niches they carved out to begin with, from bedroom pandemic production to post-isolation DIY maximalism. I can’t eat nearly as much as I want to vomit presents a very human expression of reality in spite of what is, overwhelmingly, a bad time––serving us a sort of seething, technicolor alternative sound that’s both intimate, furious, and inarguably cool.

Tracks 1, 2, 4, 8 and 9 were written in Hadley’s bedroom in Oakland (2018-2019). Track 3 was first written instrumentally at M&M Studios in Oakland. Lyrically it went through several full rewrites before finally settling in October of 2021. Track 5 was written in Livermore in between shifts at the sheet metal shop in Hadley’s brother’s bedroom. The guitar solo was lifted directly from the original demo as it had been improvised in a single take and deemed too difficult to replicate for the album. Track 6 was written in snowy Flagstaff, AZ, in 2019. It features a harpsichord solo originally written in the bass closet of SFSU in 2011-2012. Track 7 was written in the summer of 2014 at Hadley’s parents house in Livermore. It was the first song set aside for a future band (Shutups). Track 10 was started in July 2019 in New Orleans in the band van before a show at Bank St. Bar. It was torn apart several times and finally finished at M&M studios in Jan/Feb of 2022.
