The Blind Shake

The Blind Shake is a Minneapolis-based trio fronted by brothers Jim and Mike Blaha, with their friend Dave Roper on drums. Intense, uniform-clad, and seemingly from another time or world, the Blind Shake blasts out tight, catchy, surfy punk tunes. In addition to their own growing catalog of releases, the band has collaborated with the likes of psych legend Michael Yonkers and surf “Swami” John Reis. The guys stopped by Saltlands Studio to crank it out just for you in this session.

Featured song: “Pollen”
