Song 32: Shredders – Cult 45

Artist: Shredders

Song: Cult 45

With one of my all time, favourite artists Astronatualis supporting Shredders on tour there was absolutely no way I was missing this show. Despite Andy (aka Astronautalis) having only about a 40-minute set it was so worth it. Getting to enjoy it with my pal Marc made it that much better as well. I always leave his shows feeling so good and this time was no different. Opening up the show before Astronautalis was a friend of theirs from Chicago that literally jumped in the van to join the tour at the last minute. After his short set, local Toronto band Sandy Pearlman and the Bones (who I saw open up for P.O.S a few months ago) took the stage and then Andy had his incredible set. If I had left now I would have been satisfied. Instead, though Marc and I chatted with Andy a bit and the soaked up Shredders from further back in the venue since some of the crowd were, unfortunately, a bit obnoxious and we couldn’t be bothered to deal with them after working up a set during Andy’s set. A bit before their set ended I opted to move up closer though as they played some P.O.S songs I recognized. Marc called it an early night and I soaked up the rest of the set solo. Afterwards, I did get to chat with another fan I continue to see at every Astronautlis/P.O.S. show (my pal Jim the teacher) which was nice. He made some suggestions for a few other artists I should check out based on my our shared interest in some of the same music.

Anyways, the main point of this post… before this show I had never heard a Shredders song. I guess it’s worth noting though that Shredders is a pretty new band made up of four solo artists a couple of whom I am familiar with at least to song degree. The group is made up of Sims, P.O.S., Lazerbeak, and Paper Tiger who are all talented in their own respective ways. Of their entire set this song I think was the one that stuck out to me immediately. I absolutely love the chorus:

If it feels good to you
If it feels good to you
If it feels good to you
Do what you like
Right, do what you like
If it feels good to you
If it feels good to you
If it feels good to you
Do what you like
Right, do what you like

365 New Tunes is a project inspired by a tweet from the band Stars on December 31st, 2017 encouraging people to listen to a new song every day of the next year.
