New Music Discovery: Shellac 'Dude Incredible'

I like to think of it as music for grumpy dudes - Curmudgeon Core perhaps - my favorite 'old guys being angry in their 40's' band, Shellac, dropped on us their first new album since 2007's 'Excellent Italian Greyhound'. Boy did they take their time to write 8 songs that clock in at a bold 32...
