Shooting Spires is an American noise pop band from Brooklyn, New York. The group is a side project of B.J. Warshaw, best known as a member of Parts & Labor.


Warshaw began Shooting Spires as a solo project in 2007, and recorded a full-length album in between tours for Parts & Labor.[1] The self-titled album was released late that year on Cardboard Records, which is partly owned by the members of Parts & Labor.[1] Following the release of the album, Warshaw assembled a four-piece ensemble for touring purposes; this group toured the United States in 2008 and appeared at SXSW.[1]

The group's sound has been likened to Guided By Voices,[2] Brian Eno,[3] David Bowie,[4] and TV on the Radio,[5] as well as to Parts & Labor.[6]
