    You know what to do, right? Listen to Portland's The Shivas.

    They will release their fourth LP, You Know What to Do, on October 28 on Olympia-based label K and on cassette via Burger Records.

    Cassette? How presh.

    Having drawn comparisons to bands like Thee Oh Sees and Black Lips, The Shivas blend elements of surf-pop, garage-rock and good old fashioned rock 'n' roll, dousing their hook-filled melodies with a healthy dose of reverb.

    Recorded at K's own Dub Narcotic Studios and mixed on tape by Calvin Johnson, You Know What to Do is a collection of fuzzy, frenetic jams and hazy slower tunes that feature dreamy male and female harmonies.

    Sound good to you?

    You don't have to wait until almost Halloween to hear a song. Check out their new track "Manson Girls" below. Oh, like Susa Atkins and Linda Kasabian, right?

    You know what do -- listen!
