Back in May, we reviewed the new album from Shopping and Jeff commented that he was "... looking forward to what comes next." Good news for Shopping fans: The band just announced their second album, just over a month after the release of their debut. Why Choose is scheduled for release on October 2 on FatCat Records. You can already listen to the first single, "Why Wait?" I was a little hesitant based on how quickly after the first album this one will be, but 'Why Wait?" is a killer post-punk song in the vein of Gang of Four. It recognizes that sometimes less is more and a backbeat can be more danceable.
You can listen to "Why Wait?" below. Shopping have also recently announced some US dates to coincide with the release of Why Choose. Check those out below the song. For more information, check out their Facebook and Twitter.
