The wistful, daydreamy world of The Shacks drifts into familiar territory of their Stax and Muscle Shoals soul and funk predecessors without imitation or overindulgence. The hushed vocals of Shannon Wise float across the 70s funk supplied by multi-instrumental nostalgia-inciting virtuoso Max Shrager. Together, The Shacks opt to detour through their own imaginations corralling the acute intricacies into a grand affair of psychedelic lullabies and AM-radio neo-rock fantasies. With the support of Leon Michels (Charles Bradley, Sharon Jones, Lee Fields), the crew created Haze, the group's debut LP out now on Big Crown Records, recorded between Shrager's basement and Michel's Diamond Mine Studio in Long Island City. Haze swirls and grows with a profoundly lush youthful lightheartedness and golden era razzmatazz.
