Shantih Shantih: "Winter in September" (Punknews Exclusive)

Shantih Shantih: “Winter in September” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new video by Shantih Shantih!

Shantih Shantih hail from Georgia and the group stays true to their pedigree, tying rock 'n' roll together with early rockabilly. But, "Winter in September" isn't pure Sun Records aping. Vocalist Anna Barattin is originally from Italia and those famous ornate flourishes that can only come from a Paisan's heart find their way into the music. If June Carter was in a movie where she shot The Man With No Name, this would be the soundtrack.

The tune is off the album of the same name and you can order here and here. Meanwhile, see the new video below, right now.

How a Cancer Diagnosis Reunited Sticks and Stones

Sticks and Stones are reuniting for a single show. The band is often spoken about in a sort of reverent tone- they never had a big following, but since their demise, their fan base has grown silently and has grown even more dedicated. The group is hard to define, but frankly, no one, before or since, made music quite like them.

One wishes it was under happier circumstances, but the show is a benefit for rising Jewelry maker Lavender Buttons. Buttons recently had a very serious operation removing a substantial mass of cancer and still is fighting the battle. You can read the story of how the upcoming June 3 benefit gig came together, below.
