It is what it is, and what it isAn incredibly fun album, Shamir's Ratchet is a great escape from the pretentiousness of modern indie music. It is what it is, and what it is is really fun to listen t. Expand. Shamir knows how to play, in almost every single track, Ratchet is really impressive for its irreverence and funny element combinations. Shamir knows how to play, in almost every single track, with disharmonies and turn them into an original and strong stylized artwork. An excellent debut statement that leaves us excited for what else he has to offer.

Ratchet, from Las Vegas singer-songwriter Shamir Bailey, feels like a study in the best dance-pop of the past decade. It's an honest, earnest pop record, as Shamir elaborates on the gutsy melodies of his early demos and singles. Growing up in Vegas and being the weird one out, you kind of have to put on a tough face," Shamir Bailey tells those tuned into his Ratchet Radio playlist on this site. There’s both weirdness and toughness in droves on his debut e, Ratchet.

The glory of Ratchet lies in the fact that it’s an album made by a talented young buck who is already leaps and jumps ahead of where everyone is landing. What’s the point in working to the script if you know your way to a better one?

It’s an incredible album strewn with highlights obvious and sneaky, the rare debut that holds up the weight of its backstory, with the added brassiness of assuring us that’s just him on the regular.

Shop Vinyl and CDs and complete your Shamir collection. This is definitely a top contender for my album of the year! I think theneedledrop (gag) was right on the money when he said Shamir's voice is definitely an acquired taste, not everyone is going to love this record, obviously, but there's definitely something special and unique about this album and about Shamir.

Shamir Bailey’s voice sounds like freedom. That’s all illusion and artifice, of course. No one person can stand in as an avatar for that sort of feeling. Bailey is a human, like the rest of us, and he’s had to deal with the hardships of growing up as an androgynous black man in the burnt-earth suburbs north of Las Vegas, which cannot be an easy thing for anyone. The euphoric dance-pop of Bailey’s debut album Ratchet might not even be the music he wants to be making
