SHAPES AND SIZES: OFFICIAL PHILEBRITIES!

May 25th, 2007 , by

A few weeks ago, Shapes and Sizes swung by Philadelphia. Graciously invited to Cheek Studios by Woodship Films, the makers of Breakfast at Sulimay’s and Sweatheart Sweats, Shapes and Sizes recorded "Alone/Alive" to the backdrop of glowy light balls. Visit friendly Philbebrity.tv for more music and not-so-music-related video.

May 23rd, 2007 , by

It’s Wednesday in the Shapes and Sizes Half-Week, and a few new entries have cropped up in the Sidebar. Sufjan Stevens has reviewed Shapes and Sizes’ recent live show in Union Hall, and the band psuedo-interviews themselves in a piece too intense for just one sidebar. Come back tomorrow for part two!

AND SO IT BEGINS: A FULL HALF-WEEK OF SHAPES AND SIZES

May 21st, 2007 , by


As of today we have officially released Shapes and Sizes’ new album, Split Lips, Winning Hips, a Shiner. You should be able to find it on the shelves of your local independent record store. You can also purchase it from our online site by clicking here for the CD,  here for the vinyl, or here for iTunes. We have a couple free mp3s, and a full, free audio stream of the entire record, on the album page.

To celebrate this new release (that we are very proud of, if you can’t tell!), we’re kicking off a Half-Week of Shapes and Sizes content, and oh what a half-week it will be: with videos, reviews, sidebar write-ups, AKradio playlists, photographs, and origami – OH MY!

Ok, no origami. But with all the material we’re posting this week, you won’t have time to fold paper! Check here everyday until Friday for new material.

FREE THINGS WITH SPLIT LIPS

May 2nd, 2007 , by


Shapes and Sizes’ new album, Split Lips, Winning Hips, a Shiner, releases May 22, but you can order it right here on asthmatickitty.com starting next Tuesday, May 8th. Those who do will probably receive their copy a few days before the records stores.

And the first 150 who order Split Lips from our website starting May 8th will receive a limited release Shapes and Sizes and Castanets’ Tour EP, shipped straight from honest Wyoming.

Those that have heard Split Lips seem to really enjoy this record. Uncut Magazine filed it under "fractured indie rock with hints of Scandinavian improv-jazz." And The Plugg said that Shapes and Sizes have "upped the stakes" with this one.  Other interested parties can listen to a free, full-album stream here. That should be enough to prepare you for the upcoming Shapes and Sizes Half-Week, which will start May 22.

SHAPES AND SIZES TOUR DATES CANCELLED

March 21st, 2007 , by

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Shapes and Sizes is regrettably canceling all remaining dates on their tour with Castanets.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

Luckily, they had time to complete a tour diary for our sidebar, which you can read here. Their second album, Split Lips, Winning Hips, a Shiner, remains on target for release on May 22.

Castanets will complete their tour dates, which you can view here.

CASTANETS AND SHAPES AND SIZES SHARE A RIDE

What happens when two Asthmatic Kitty bands collide? A tour that shakes the Northern Americas to its core, that’s what. Castanets and Shapes and Sizes will be trucking from town to town, getting to know each other – and hopefully you! – a little better. Tour stops will include DC, New Orleans, Dallas, Chicago, and SXSW in Austin,Texas (more information on that next week). Shapes and Sizes will then smuggle Castanets into their homeland with stops in Toronto and Montreal.

And yes, since you’re wondering, the van’s cargo will not only include old (fake) ham sandwiches and empty water bottles, but also copies of an split tour EP.  This tour EP is a limited edition digipack of 1000 copies and is beautifully adorned with artwork by our sidebar art correspondent, Gala Bent.   These will be available alongside the also limited Unusual Animals Vinyl Series, Volumes 1 & 2. They will make these available at their merchandise tables (while supplies last) at each of the shows.
