Oakland's Silver Shadows are a witchy, post-punk dream. While the band itself is new, the band's frontwomen have both spent the past decade playing in endless strings of amazing, tragically underappreciated bands (Upside Drown, Twig Palace, and the Waltz Invention, just to name a few). And there is no better tour pairing for this new project than Ruby Pins, the solo work of Grass Widow drummer Lily Maring. Ruby Pins' debut album, which came out last year on Portland's own M'lady's Records, is in a world all its own. At times sounding like Gang of Four interpreting the music of David Bowie, the album is a disorienting but infectious work of genius. Onstage, both these bands are hypnotic forces of ethereal punk.
