Canadian born artist Shmu dug a hole in his backyard and continued to dig until he reached Boston, Mass, where he attended and graduated from music college in Boston. Shmu then re-emerged in Austin, TX where he plays local music venues, as well as playing around Texas.

There are hints of the 60s/70s California folk-rock/pop-rock scene with influences like CSNY, Joni Mitchell and Steely Dan. He draws from My Bloody Valentine and Smashing Pumpkins for his fuzzy/shoegazey material and dabbles in the minimalistic pop style of Talking Heads and modern acts like Animal Collective. His latest musical explorations have been combining shoegaze with glitch/electro in the vein of Ulrich Schnauss and The Field. What all of these influences have in common is their psychedelic and druggy nature, which defines Shmu’s music. It can almost be considered “newgaze”, like a modern-day interpretation of the early 90’s shoegaze movement.

    Indeed, and it's entirely deserving of all the attention it's going to get.
