shave a state of surreal perfection

Fronted by surreal lyrical imagery, the Shave sound is hypnotic, ethereal & seductive--a journey to the back of your skull. Obsessive attention to detail in the sculpting of the tracks plays out in gorgeously layered and lushly produced vocals, harmonies, and instrumentation. Masterfully crafted dynamic and edgy pop songs.

Shave Librarian Glass Cat

 

“One of the top 12 bands in the United States.”
-INDEPENDENT SONGWRITER WEB MAGAZINE

*******
The Butter Thief is filled with music for the thinking man (and woman), with its seductive allure and ethereal edge. You need only to sit back and enjoy the layers of sound through a competent set of headphones to fully recognize Shave Librarian's message. But don't be surprised when you succumb to their magic; they weave a potent spell with their unprecedented delivery." 
-METRONOME (Boston, MA)

*******
"Creativity strikes again, giving the BIG BUX industry the need for a band-aid!“

“This baby has a lot to do with what original music SHOULD sound like, but seldom does.”

“…an incredible, original listening experience." 
-SCREED MUSIC ZINE (Cincinnati, OH)

*******
“It's no surprise that Shave Librarian has managed to create yet another solid piece
of work that defies reality. Known for their eccentric arrangements played against
uncluttered lyrics, Shave Librarian is a powerful group that hovers above pure twisted
genius.”
-INDEPENDENT SONGWRITER WEB MAGAZINE

*******
"One style seemingly absent from retro-rock resurfacings is that mid-80s-based combo of layered synths, drum machines, and quirky new wave/goth vocals over funky danceable pop songs.”  

 “…this is the type of crossover music that if it hits it gets radio-play in both the dance and rock formats…”
-THE NOISE (Boston, MA)

*******
“It was incredible, and quite imaginative!”

“I definitely suggest you all check it out… it is quite worthwhile!”
-BOSTON SOUNDCHECK MAGAZINE (Boston, MA)

*******
An adventure to the back of your skull.
-BUZZCUTS (Online Review)
