Las Vegas-based artist Shamir will release his first full-length LP Ratchet on XL Recordings on May 19. [iTunes link]
In October of 2014, Shamir temporarily relocated to Brooklyn, where he lived in the artist space Silent Barn to record Ratchet with GODMODE founder Nick Sylvester.
The result is a disco house R&B marvel.
It's ecstatic but hardened, urgent but expertly weathered, sparkling with grit of a desert geode. The album is akin to the 20-year old Shamir, transcends boundaries like genre, gender, age and geography.
Those are all things we like in our tunes.
Ratchet Track Listing:
2. Make a Scene
3. On the Regular
4. Call it Off
5. Hot Mess
7. In for the Kill
10. Head In the Clouds
Check out "On the Regular" and "Call It Off," too!
We're so Ratchet!
