MP3 of the Week: Thick Shakes, "Baby You're a Starfish"

Part motivational speech and part theme to your next car chase, this standout jam off the debut EP from the JP garbáge-rock trio THICK SHAKES is nothing short of fire under your ears’ asses. Mixed in with the Shakes’ usual recipe is an unexpected Farfisa scratch that feels like a spoonful of sand in a cup of black coffee. Next Saturday, February 20, at P.A.’s Lounge, the Shakes fête the proper release of Ooh Mommy — both as a free download from their Web site and, more palpably, as a bad-ass cassette, available through Austin’s Snugglehound Records, and perfect for playback in the giant old sedan racing down the deserted highway of your choice. It’s a doozy of a bill, too, with the equally cassette-favoring Quilt and Girlfriends and the often shockingly awesome Hands & Knees. Download "Baby You're a Starfish" below.
