The Shang Hi Los - "Billy"

Boston garage rock supergroup (consisting of members of The Dents, The Downbeat 5, Watts, The Neighborhoods, and Eddie Japan) have just released a new single that will sound nothing like what you'd expect to hear from them. Ok... "Billy" is still a garage rock track, so it's not completely unexpected. "Billy" also has a noir Western feel to it, complete with "Ring of Fire" style horns. Notice that I didn't say it's sounds like country and western, but Western. This sounds like it could be the theme song to an odd little low budget hipster Western heavily inspired by Quentin Tarantino. It's an ultra cool left turn for one of our favorite local garage rock bands!

You can watch the video for "Billy" below. The single is currently available via Rum Bar Records and can be found over at Bandcamp. For more on The Shang Hi Los, check out the band's Facebook.
