Shopping Announce Their Debut Album, 'Consumer Complaints' Released 4th November 2013

Take the 'con' away from consumerism and put the 'super' back in Supermarket Sweep. Edinburgh may have had the Shop Assistants but East London has...Shopping. This is the sound of ESG and the Au Pairs flogging Seiko watches on Portobello Road with Anne Robinson.
 
Propulsive bass lines, cardboard-box drumming, polyrhythmic guitars, gobbledygook, chit-chat, needle-sharp witticisms and a hell of a bellow from Trash Kit's Rachel Aggs makes for an edifying concoction.
 
'You Are A Sort (Don't Call Me)' is a murky disco riposte to bad vibes, 'We Say You Pay' is a state of the nation address to anyone who will listen and 'Right Now' is all about the slinky bass lines.
 
That's not forgetting the frothing surf guitar of the memory-ingraining 'In Other Words', the band's debut 7" which sold out in just ten days. Yes.
 
With influences stretching from the golden days of New York post-punk to quintessentially British messthetics and early Rough Trade singles, Shopping - Billy Easter, Andrew Milk and Rachel Aggs - formed in 2012 down in the dark subterranean enclaves of Power Lunches arts cafe and venue in Dalston.
 
They spent summer 2013 making jaws drop from Berlin to Bradford on their first ever Euro tour and totally owned the airwaves during their recent BBC 6 Music Session forMarc Riley.
 
Some things just feel right.
