EDITORS’ NOTES

!!!’s seventh album was conceived during a week of jamming in Barcelona. Each night, frontman Nic Offer had a “f*cking fantastic” time editing the sessions on their apartment balcony in his underwear. That sense of fun and abandon rings through the thumping rhythms, invigorating grooves, and luminous hooks—from “The One 2”’s junglist house to the elastic funk of “Five Companies.” Gloomier thinking lurks within lyrics that explore heartbreak, politics, and aging but, 20 years since they formed, the dance-punk veterans are as energized and energizing as ever.

!!! Gives me life. I can't wait to hear this entire album. I have been listening to these guys since the early 00's. They are true to dance music and for that I will be forever grateful.

!!!'s best since Myth Takes

While the past three !!! records (Strange Weather, Thr!!!er, and As If) were awesome in their own ways Shake The Shudder really knocks it outta the park. It's a bit more unified than the those aforementioned releases, but its also more adventurous particularly in the grooves and in the mixing. Nic Offer has come a long way as a vocalist since the band's debut over 15 years ago and the band is as tight as ever. Bringing in guest singers is also a smart decision to help liven up the party vibe. Favorite tracks are "Dancing Is The Best Revenge", "Throw Yourself In the River", "5 Companies" and "Our Love (U Can Get)."
