The Line of Best Fit gives Penguins Kill Polar Bears a fantastic review.
“Post-rock may or may not have been a reaction to the indie rock and new wave of the 90s, but it’s certainly a tonic in the modern musical medical cabinet: if you are feeling a little weary, on Vessels & Veins you can take 4 doses daily after ingesting your genre.”

The whole Dromedary family extends its most sincere condolences to the friends and family of Josh Silverman of Shirk Circus.
Josh created beautiful, emotional music with both Shirk Circus and The Dark Brothers. The two Shirk Circus records on the Bar/None label stand out as two of the greatest documents of 1990s indie rock, and the band’s reunion performance in October was a shining example of how great indie rock can be. He was a brilliant songwriter and a monster guitar player that could play tastefully in the background or knock you out with a blistering solo.
We are honored to have had the opportunity to know him, and wish him well on his journey.
We’ll miss you, Josh.
