Black Whales: Shangri-La Indeed

Shangri-La Indeed Cover Art

Shangri-La Indeed is the debut LP from Seattle garage psych pop outfit Black Whales. The album has moments of lo-fi coupled with top notch production, imaginative instrumentals and strong vocals. Black Whales craft an original sound where a 60's vibe is propelled by alt rock guitars and folk sensibilities. The many stylistic influences are mashed up to yield very strong pop songs that are decpetively heavy. Black Whales are not caught up in the Seattle mystic, but rather follow their own path to an album that pushes boundries that other Pacific NW bands have missed.
