Shopping

UK trio Shopping have shared the video for "Straight Lines" from their just-released second album Why Choose?. Directed by Margarita Louca, it imagines people as furniture in a matter-of-fact, well-shot style. It's pretty clever, fits the angular post-punk vibe of the song, and you can watch that below.

As mentioned, Shopping will start their North American tour here in NYC at CMJ where they'll be playing a whole bunch of shows:

Mon. Oct. 12 @ Elvis Guesthouse (Oh My Rockness CMJ Kick off)
Wed. Oct. 14 @ Pianos (Culture Collide + Kanine Records) FREE
Wed. Oct. 14 @ Santos Party House (NME + Popgun + House Arrest)
Thu. Oct. 15 @ Rough Trade In-Store FREE
Thu. Oct. 15 @ Cake Shop
Fri. Oct. 16 @ Music Hall of Williamsburg

The MHOW date is also the first of their tour with Shannon & the Clams and that show also features Sheer Mag and PMS & the Moodswings. Sold out but they will be taking limited CMJ badges/showpasses. Shopping will wrap up their tour with another NYC visit, playing that Palisades show on November 21 with Priests and Arm Candy (tickets).

All tour dates are listed below...
