Tucker Slough and Shanté Clair of Shiny Jets

At 11:30 Shanté Clair & Tucker Slough of Shiny Jets join us to share music from their: EPs 1 & 2, and EPs 3 & 4, written, recorded and mixed by Shiny Jets. Shiny Jets is an experimental rock band formed in Chicago in 2004 when drummer Tucker Slough encountered singer/guitarist Shanté Clair performing at a party thrown by a mutual friend in Rogers Park. The two became friends and began incorporating Tucker’s drumming into Shanté’s existing solo project, The Maybe. Soon they began writing new songs and pushing their musical ideas further, incorporating looping and electronics until they had compiled a number of songs. Some time afterwards, Tucker moved back to his hometown of KC and Shanté left Chicago to live in New York City. In 2014, the two began collaborating again, with Shanté writing songs that Tucker would then add drums parts to and send back via Dropbox. In 2015 Shanté moved to KC to begin work on the project that would become Shiny Jets. Using songs written back in Chicago and those songs written long distance from NYC and KC, the two began adding layers of sampling and further experimentation with even more complex looping and arrangements.
