What can we say about the dearly departed? No words can cut it - this record will always be born in the sad shadow of Steve Albini's passing but, despite (or perhaps because of) that grim context, it hits double hard.

The trademark angular guitars that launched a thousand post-punk bands are ever-present, as are the stop-start rhythms which writhe and lurch like electrocuted cattle, but it's that inimitable blend of all of the above with an inventively lyrical and impassioned delivery that means this leaves us nursing a thousand hurts. Steve Albini was a boundary-smashing figure at both ends of the recording studio, & this album is a heartbreaking listen. THE BAND - It’s still: Steve Albini - Guitar; Todd Trainer - Drum; Bob Weston - Bass. DATA - This is Shellac’s sixth studio LP. Recording & Mixing took place at Electrical Audio in Chicago over a bunch of long weekends in November, 2017; October, 2019; September, 2021; and March, 2022. The record was mastered by Bob & Steve at Chicago Mastering Service.

PACKAGING - LP and CD packaging and artwork are identical (the CD is just smaller). Bob took all the photos; some with a fancy camera and some with a telephone.

QC - Audio quality is paramount, as always, with Shellac. The LPs are being manufactured by Green Vinyl Records using an injection molding process. This new process uses 100% recyclable PET (like soda bottles) and is environmentally friendly, containing no PVC or Phthalates. The process also uses 79% less CO2 than conventional hydraulic PVC vinyl presses. The records weigh 180 grams.
