Editorial Reviews

We versus the shark has already built a well-deserved reputation for attacking the stylistic boundaries that have fenced in less brave indie artists. Objectively though, having genre-hopping influences and a creativity-first ideology is not necessarily a unique notion amongst the independent rock community at large. What makes we versus the shark unique is their commitment to reigning this diverse palette of influences into a completely coherent, immediately identifiable vision that hits as well on the dance floor as it does under critical intense listening. "ruin everything!" which is their debut full length was recorded to analog tape in 2004. We versus the shark provide the listener with heavy rock riffs, disco’ed out rhythms, odd time, abrasive synths, harsh screams and airy counterpoint which all leave their indelible footprint by track three. Textured arrangements, complete with percussive breaks, handclaps, foot stomps, and three very distinctive vocalists make listening a near contact sport as the explosive energies of the group pound the listener to near exhaustion before darting forward in refreshing, unanticipated directions.

these guys are definately not in high school, they're at least in their mid twenties. i live in athens and have seen them several times. as a matter of fact, i just saw them perform a few hours ago. they are insane live, and this cd somewhat captures their full potential. but believe me, there will be more to come, and if anyone has access to flagpole.com or any other means of learning when they will be playing here or elsewhere, get out and see them dammit, you will not be disappointed.

The Sharks are not in high school, but are rock vagabonds from Athens, Georgia. This record features the uncomfortable clutch-your-office-chair production of Epi-1, and more twists and turns than a latter-period Autechre record. We Vs The Shark kick the Dismemberment Plan hard in the bum, and then transport themselves into left field in order to successfully catch Travis Morrison's head for the final out of the "World Series of Math Rock." Killer...

This album is nothing short of incredible. It's a wonderful mix of emo, heavy, and sheer insanity. These kids are in high school, I think. What do they feed them in Atlanta?

"ten uh clock heart uh tack" is my absolute favorite. It begins slowly and builds with intricate percussion and beautifully pluck/strum guitars with just the right amounts of everything, with extremely youthful "I want so much to be with you right now" female lyrics. Then all of a sudden they bust out their microtonal and fretless guitars and wail for a few seconds, then are right back into it, then get heavy.

All the songs include wonderful songwriting and just the right amount of emotion, style, and grace. My only complaint is that I haven't seen them live.

Not only does this band have the coolest name out there, this might actually be an album of the year candidate. Oh my Garsh this is good. I'm listening to "Ten Uh Clock Heart Uh Tack" right now and it contrasts so perfectly with the first two tracks, those female vocals are just straight up tender.....
