The Music Digest DJs Pat, Matt, and Margaret 7/8/13 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. 00:00 Intro 00:39 Mic Break 06:19 For Goodness Sake - Shannon and the Clams 09:45 Mic Break 14:00 Bed Rock - Shannon and the Clams 16:11 Mic Break 20:02 The Rabbit's Nose - Shannon and the Clams 23:13 Mic Break 26:39 Rip Van Winkle - Shannon and the Clams 28:45 Mic Break 33:20 Unlearn - Shannon and the Clams 37:36 Mic Break 41:45 If I Could Count - Shannon and the Clams 45:35 Mic Break 49:56 Ozma - Shannon and the Clams 53:24 Finish Dreams in the Rat House 1.
