SHINOLA VOL. 1 is a collection of odds, ends, and leftovers from around our studio and contains killer new mixes of a lot of songs that have been floating around. I don’t mind telling you that it’s a really great record. The record was produced and mixed by Andrew Weiss and Ween and it’s an ugly one. You really wanna pick this up, I’m not shitting you.”
“. to pin a moniker on Ween is like tackling a greased pig. The band nimbly works its way through disparate topics and styles. From the marine-flavoured prog-rock of their latest, “The Mollusk” to the psycho twangcore country sound of “Twelve Golden Country Greats”, the band continues to feast on every musical style they can get their hooks into. Ween consumes popular culture at a furious rate, regurgitating demented interpretations to the delight of their fans. Via peculiar guitar and voice effects and crackpot grooves, the band has become known for their takes on standard musical tropes ranging from Irish folk to 70s era stadium rock. Ween reflects what they see like a carnival mirror — twisted and just a little off.
