Shopping - All Or Nothing

FATCAT RECORDS

  • £17.99


Shopping's fourth album, All Or Nothing, is a record that speaks about commitment, leaps of faith and tests of courage.

Consisting of Rachel Aggs (Trash Kit, Sacred Paws, Golden Grrrls etc.), Andrew Milk (As Ondas, Current Affairs, etc.) and Billy Easter (Wetdog, Covergirl, etc.), the band explains “a lot has happened in our personal lives since we last recorded and we knew this album was going to reflect that exciting and scary feeling that comes with change, heartbreak and personal evolution.” Since their last record the band are now spread across the globe, with Billy in LA and Andrew and Rachel in Glasgow, and the songs were written in a two week intensive period while they were all together.

Compared to the more stripped-back sound of previous albums, 2013's Consumer Complaints, 2015's Why Choose, 2017's The Official BodyAll Or Nothing, released right before the pandemic hit in 2020, captures Shopping's in their cleanest, most direct and pop-shiny production to date, raising those occasional new-wave synth-fuzz flourishes to an epic-scape scales. Driven by bass lines that have never been as persistent, this is punk for the dance-floor, like ESG or later-Gossip; but Shopping are at their best when all three key ingredients are circling each other, ready to pounce... To Billy's relentless bass, add Andrew's disco drums with those Palmolive-esque-tom-tom-excursions, and then Rachel's bouncing guitar, effortlessly running circles around circles. As all three members confidently trade vocal duties off each other, and the space between them becomes charged and electrifying!
