"An overview of Shamelessly Exciting begins with "Walls Of The City Shake", a fist-pumping anthem of maximum intensity featuring David Grubbs on piano. Forrest refines his conceptual cut-and-paste aesthetics in "My 36 Favorite Punk Songs" on which you can literally hear Forrest's 36 favorite punk songs, cut up and mixed to 2:20 minutes. Then he flips to something more appropriate for 70's AM radio with "Dreaming And Remembering" and "Skyrocket Saturday" -- both tributes to forgotten pop heroes and one hit wonders. "War Photographer" gets down to a funky blend of big beats and a kicking brass band and "Evil Doesn't Exist Anymore" is a massive blues-fueled masterpiece where Forrest collaborates with Norwegian experimental artist, Maja Ratke. Yet the biggest surprise on the album is "Nightclothes and Headphones" featuring Matador recording artist and renowned country singer Laura Cantrell." (label info)
