The Shackeltons are a a five-piece indie rock act from Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. They've got an interesting sound; I read somewhere (I forget where) that their sound is somewhere between Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and the Talking Heads. Sounds like a big range, but it fits -- to the tune, I guess, of a four-star review of their self-titled debut album in the January issue of Spin.
Anyway, we figured you might be interested in a free download of the opening track from their CD...
...because the Shackeltons are gonna be playing the Double Wide tonight, y'all. --Pete Freedman
