    The Sh-Booms

    Deep Soul

    There's this dynamic that churns hard in The Blurred Odyssey, the debut full-length

    album by ascendant Orlando garage-soul enterprise The Sh-Booms, out March 22,

    2019 on Limited Fanfare Records. The music pumps with the hot, red blood of life

    irrepressible. But there's a cloud on the horizon, the doomed sense of life's finitude, that

    fueled these songs. Rather than dead-end nihilism, though, it's resulted in the kind of

    urgent, creative friction that Hunter S. Thompson could get down with. In making this

    album, The Sh-Booms have dug through the blur of life, swam through a sea of booze,

    to find love and truth in the shadow of the void.

    Although a soul band through and through, the grease and bite they've been picking up

    in the years leading up to this big step out have been forged in the bad company of

    punk and garage bands. From that underground now rises a new hurricane of big

    orchestration, maximum stomp and fresh intent. It's a little ache and a lot of party all

    wrapped up in a wrecking ball.

    Since their 2011 inception, The Sh-Booms have become kind of a thing in their native

    scene and beyond. Besides perennial winners of “Best Soul Act” in the Orlando

    Weekly's

    big annual Best of Orlando issue, they've been tapped to share the stage with

    national names like The Roots, Of Montreal, Talib Kweli, KRS-One, Jacuzzi Boys,

    Budos Band, Big Freedia, Lee Fields, St. Paul & the Broken Bones and The B-52's

    (whom the band toured with in 2017 and 2018). They've been featured on NPR, their

    music has been made it on TV (CW's Supergirl) and they've played Austin City Limits,

    Okeechobee Music Festival, SunFest and Gasparilla Music Festivals.

    When powerhouse singer Brenda Radney joined in 2015, the band's course has been

    locked, their date with destiny set. She was signed to Justin Timberlake's Tennman

    label, even appearing on his album, The 20/20 Experience, Pt. 2. But after clicking with

    band leader Al Ruiz while recording separately in the same studio, she jumped aboard

    The Sh-Booms to turn this train into a true locomotive. After the release of their 2016

    Usage Fee EP and a countless number of shows in the Southeast, the 10 songs along

    The Blurred Odyssey were Produced by Grammy-nominated Alan Armitage (AA Villain)

    over an 18-month span that cemented the band as a tight-knit unit. That chemistry

    achieved is where The Sh-Booms are now, and The Blurred Odyssey is their testament.

    The seas are a-stirrin'...The storm's a-brewin
