Shalants‘ new self-titled album is out now via American Dust. With a sound that can best be described as garage-tinged Americana (bluesy and bold), “The Mercury Twins” manages to fit both the San Francisco garage-pop scene and the rustic spirit of California.

Shalants – “The Mercury Twins”

Shalants are playing the fantastic Penny Arcade showcase tomorrow, 7/6/11 at the Make-Out Room, along with Tim Cohen’s Magic Trick, Tippy Canoe and Pancho-San (8:00 pm, $8).
