The Music Digest
DJs Pat, Matt, and Margaret

Today we review the third LP release from Shannon and The Clams, Dreams in the Rat House, which came out on Hardly Art on May 21st. For this album, the Oakland trio hones their lo-fi production prowess and offers a fun, grungy, garage-y, modern twist on mid-60s psychedelia. A great listen for summer.
