London Band To Watch Shame Brings Its Songs Of Praise To Brooklyn

Chances are, if you’ve spent any time at all with this year’s Songs Of Praise (Dead Oceans), the debut album from Shame, you know this South London quintet is the real deal. But not even an LP this good could possibly prepare you for the live show that Charlie Steen and Co. put on, a sweat-soaked, leave-it-all-on-the-field blast of sometimes-brutal post-punk energy that will leave your ears ringing for days. MAGNET photographer (and true believer) Wes Orshoski recently braved the mosh pit to capture Shame’s live sermons on the Music Hall Of Williamsburg mountain.
