Opinions on "The Shins"

Recommended Posts

Just came across their music for the first time recently and it appeals to me. What should I know?

Grits is a fan... Saint Simon and Phantom Limb are alright but it seems like a weird band to me...

I don't have any in-depth analysis for you but they are worth a listen.

Is this code for a Skins support rally? :D

good band out of Portland, they are in my rotation. Got popular after a couple of their tunes made the

Garden State soundtrack.

I've got a couple of their albums. Good stuff. Nice harmonies. Very mellow and relaxing. I don't have their latest one yet. The only problem is that it all starts to sound the same after awhile.

I've got Chutes too Narrow on CD or whatever on CD. I like it, I haven't heard the newest one yet.

I was listening to the Shins yesterday on tyhe way home and thought about this thread.

 

How'd that work out for you?

oh! inverted world (first album) is better than chutes too narrow IMO - haven't checked out their new one.

I agree. I have oh! inverted world and still listen to it regularly. I haven't checked out their new album either, but I will at some point because I really enjoy their music.

They are part of that tinny yet pleasant group of bands with some really good hooks that after a while do become indistinguishable ( :D oh god, did I just become my parents when I said that all this music sounds the same? :D:tup: )

You would probably also like The New Pornographers (Canadian shins, a little gheyer), Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (slightly edgier Shins)
