Why You Should Care: 

One of the newest artists on Anti- Records (label of the two influences cited above), Saskatchewan’s Shauf is poised to break out. Andy Shauf’s 2015 record Bearer of Bad News was a breathtaking collection of mostly harsh tales about drug addiction, murder, and the kind of world-weary ne’er-do-wells that would feel right at home in songs by another of Shauf’s labelmates – Tom Waits.
