Chicago's Mass Shivers, fronted by Brett Sova and featuring drummer Sean Wilke, debuted with the progressive bass-less garage-rock of Mass Shivers (Sickroom, 2005). After the improvised jams of I Win When I Want (Licking River Records, 2006), the stoner-influenced mini-album Ecstatic Eyes Glow Glossy (Pickled Egg, 2007), containing Womanizing Metal Studs, another improvised album, Wooden Lace & Rotting Arm (2008), adding bassist Andy Johnson, and the single Torrid Sex In East Berlin (2009), Mass Shivers harked back to the late 1960s and early 1970s for the better structured but less original Contoured Heat (Licking River, 2010). The echoes of psychedelic-rock, blues-rock and hard-rock are so strong that several of the songs sound like covers of Cream, Traffic, Faces, Mountain and the likes. The monster garage-rock of More Bumper Than A Body Shop evokes Blue Cheer; I've Got The Power is syncopated blues-rock a` la Free with a poppy refrain a` la Cream; Anonynominous borrows from Black Sabbath and Rolling Stones; etc. The creative moments are still capable of packing punkish energy in innovative song formats: the swirling Middle-Eastern dance of Outsider Erotica, the mind-bending acid lullaby of Beneath The Sand, reminiscent of early Pink Floyd, and especially the demented pow-wow dance of Languid Liquid (with its instrumental coda Odin V. Oden). Coincidentally or not, they all rely on drumming magic by Sean Wilke. (Translation by/ Tradotto da xxx)
