The year Shellshag played Hawaii and joined the band Underground Railroad to Candyland at Awesome Fest in San Diego.

5. What records are you looking forward to most in 2014?

Black Rainbow, Screaming Females, Underground Railroad to Candyland, Benny and the Jet Rodriguez, a new P.S. Elliot (although I don't think this is happening, I'd like it too), Lilith Velkor and the next Laura Stevenson album.

6. There is a lot of debate over streaming sites and royalties, namely with Spotify. What is your stance on the economic policies behind the current streaming services? Do you have a preferred one?

We focus on our music.
