Since forming under the name Girlfriends in 2009, Boston's Bent Shapes has released a string of cassettes and 7”s full of fuzzy garage, frantic jangle pop, and scrappy post-punk on various labels (including band members’ own imprints). The band’s myriad of influences reference touchstones like Josef K, The Feelies, Jonathan Richman, Billy Childish, and The Fall. Vinyl orders come with a digital download & 11x17 poster.
Produced, engineered, and mixed by Ian Doerr and Evan Murphy at Mystic Steamship Company in Arlington, MA. Mastered by Paul Gold at Salt Mastering. Cover art by Casey Spectacular. Innersleeve art by Supriya Gunda. Layout by AMCo.

"... tight, hummable melodies to ramshackle garage sprawl" - Spin
"...an essential no-filler record with some of the best indie pop songwriting you’ll hear all year" - Stereogum
