|Red House Painters chronology|
Shock Me was recorded and mixed at Coast Recorders, San Francisco in 1993. Additional recording took place at Razor's Edge, also in San Francisco.
The EP features two versions of the song "Shock Me", a Kiss cover. The EP went out of print shortly after its initial release. The tracks later surfaced on the reissued edition of Red House Painters (Bridge), released in 1999.
The "untitled instrumental" hidden track is actually an instrumental version of "A Million + 8 Things", a song from the early Red House Painters demo tapes (dated 1991-1992).
In his retrospective review, Dean Carlson of AllMusic wrote: "this mid-career EP displays a confident, introspective Red House Painters seemingly influenced by a parallel world where Nick Drake shoegazed it up with Ride or Chapterhouse. Somehow, it's quietly splendid."
