Shilohs - International Appeal

Rarities comp
various dates & venues (2012-2014)

soundboard, FM & audience recordings (sound quality: variable, VG to VG++)

Sunny Sunday afternoon: The Shilohs
ROB SEZ: The Shilohs are based in Vancouver, Canada. I’m guessing they took their name from an early Gram Parsons combo. This band’s sound certainly has some GP echoes, but their studio recordings also reflect an appreciation for The Beatles and The Kinks. Meanwhile, band member Daniel Colussi says the group is “trying to exorcise the ghosts of Glen Campbell, Lou Reed and Paul McCartney ... with some backbeat.” Spin described their first album as a “delicious bit of Big Star-informed, Feelies-indebted pop.”

Nobody (except The Shilohs) knows the diners they've seen...

The Shilohs’ EP & two full-length albums are available
at Light Organ Records as well as Bandcamp.
Here's a link to their video 'English Roads' and a recent interview. 
Their FB page says they did some recording this summer for a 
yet-untitled album. I say: bring it!
