The ShimmiesWith what began as a childhood project that combined brothers Sean and Jimmy Galloway’s first names, The Shimmies has now created a self-appointed genre for itself, lovingly referred to as “home school rock.”

First featured on the daily Dose in July 2010, they have released an EP called Growing Up Roanoke from which this track is taken.

“Following up the success of To All Beloved Enemies, The Shimmies new EP features four of the 15 songs feverishly recorded during that withering 100+ degree Northern California summer of 2009. During this period of heat-seared insanity, The Shimmies produced over 70 minutes of music, far more than the band originally anticipated. Comprised of three original songs and one cover (of The Shimmies’ best friend-band The Delta Mirror’s “And The Radio Played On”), the tracks on “Growing Up Roanoke” evoke the same thread of emotional chaos and vulnerability found on To All Beloved Enemies. ”
