A collection of unreleased cuts from the sadly no longer a going concern Shacks and one that shouldn't be discounted as a throwaway collection rather a kind of alternative best of collection of recordings that never quite found their way out. Full of big funk, full fuzz, Euro exotica indie pop that slaps harder than you ever give credit for then again El Michels Affair and Max Shrager are on production, so of course their gear slapped.

When Big Crown was brand new The Shacks were one of the rst bands we signed. Shannon was still 17, so we had to wait until her eighteenth birthday to sign the contract. Their introduction to the world was a feature on an El Michels Affair track "Strange Boy" and it did not take long for them to catch on from there. Next was the B side of that El Michels Affair 45 "No Surprise" and the momentum kept going for them. We followed up with their self titled debut EP and that's when things started to move faster. The Shacks got invited to tour the US and Europe with Chicano Batman and Khruangbin. It was during one of those runs that the Apple ad happened. Their cover of "This Strange Effect" got placed in a global ad campaign and the director insisted that Shannon star in the spot. That ad ran on every major TV network in the US, playing during the Superbowl, SNL, and every other high prole thing airing during that time. Then they rolled it out across the globe amassing something to the tune of a billion views. We released their highly anticipated rst full length Haze in 2018 and they were touring all over the country and Europe promoting the record and riding the wave of success from accolade to accolade.

As fate would have it though, before the next album was nished, things fell apart for the band. Choosing to part ways in 2020 for good, Shannon and Max set out on different paths to pursue separate careers and leave The Shacks behind. During the heyday for them when they were not on the road they were recording and they were very prolic in their output. A lot of those songs never saw the light of day. Here on Big Crown Vaults Vol. 2 we put some of the best of those unreleased tracks and some things that never saw a vinyl pressing together for the fans to enjoy. The Shacks catalog of music is incredible and will be here forever for us to enjoy. Keep an ear out for what is next from Shannon and Max, they are two very talented people that we loved working with.
