Album Notes
These four guys and a girl play an infectious breed of New York City garage pop that will keep you bouncing in your seat. Their music is reminiscent of the CBGB's scene of the 70's, complete with fierce hooks and razor blade guitars, but with influences ranging from The Cure to Franz Ferdinand, The Shapes create a sound all their own. The Shapes debut self-titled record has been spun by over 150 college radio stations to date and has charted on 16 of them.

The record was recorded and mixed at Threshold Studios in New York City and mastered at Avatar Studios by Fred Kevorkian (White Stripes, Ryan Adams, Iggy Pop).

Fucking Awesome
Keep up the good work! I love Dreaming of an m16... when is your next album coming out???



Love it!
This could actually be the best CD I've ever found while browsing CD Baby. I can't believe The Shapes aren't huge yet! Seriously, these guys and girl will go far if they keep making music as rocking as ther debut.


Focking Gleat!
The Shapes are the best new band I've come across in my years of hanging out at crappy bars with good music. To know them is to love them. They rock live and thankfully their energy and dynamic transfer well to this recording. Please listen to The Shapes, you won't regret it! This CD is the one that never gets cycled out of the CD tray.


The CD came in tip-top shape, and everything else was impeccable. As for the ban
This CD is pretty new, as for the genre. It plays perfectly, the CD brochure was nice, but lacked lyrics to sing along with, and band pictures. Other than that, it was good. As for the mailing, nothing seemed damaged, so it went swell.

The Shapes hit all my right buttons - razor sharp guitars and punchy melodies. Reminds me of Early Church and they are just as exciting !!! this!
