I really like it.
It's really good, a bit surprised by how much I like it.
Really got back into The Shins recently. Roll on the new record and tour
God I fucking love this band.
look forward to the album and hopefully getting to see them live
anything else they've done, but rather predictably, I love it especially the noodley bit under the gigantic hook.
as expected. the guy can write a killer tune
if so, can someone explain to me?
According to Pitchfork Marty Crandall and Dave Hernandez helped out on the record though. Maybe Jesse shouldn't have been so vocal about being dropped...
Regardless, its a brilliant song.
who cares about the other berks anyway? it's always been about James!
Those vocal melodies are so good. Most bands are rubbish at doing this by comparison.
however the chorus on that song is real nice
and The Walkmen, big hopes for 2012
(Simple Song and Australia) but, more importantly, said there would be UK dates in March :-)
confirmed, goes on sale Friday http://bit.ly/xQVqGn
any of you lot got any questions you'd like to know the answer to?
on the Dark Night of the Soul record.
and I might be wrong... but wasn't that record all done remotely and compiled by Danger Mouse?
Still Insane Lullaby, what a great track. Was really made up when Broken Bells played it at the RFH show.
I did however ask him why he refers to drowning in a lot of his songs but never is there a pitchforking motif... he was very diplomatic.
Isn't it time to do a more extensive tour in Europe?
...ahead of friday. Otheriwse i will be buying tickets and flogging them for profit on ebay with a completely clear conscience.
they've gotta drive to Amsterdam, and suspect probably will wanna come back and play a huge Albert Hall/Ally Pally/Brixton type show in the autumn
European dates: http://drownedinsound.com/news/4144350-the-shins-bring-port-of-morrow-to-london-in-march
I can feel an End of the Road in my waters, but could be Latitude or Green Man too....
One of the check-shirt and beards ones will get them for sure.
judging by the response on Twitter I'm getting abit worried.
Strangely, I don't think I have ever heard The Shins before though.
Now watch them announce the Friday...
As a seller removed a great degree of frustration from the process.
and got straight in without having to refresh once.
...still leaves them plenty of time to get to Amsterdam for the Sunday date
for said Fri date?
it's set to the news 24 clock ffs
Hope you're right. I had to settle for seated tickets but am happy to see them twice in two nights.
see y'all there. i'll be the one dancing a bit too enthusiastically.
on sale tomorrow
Support on their May/June leg of the States tour is.....The Antlers...f*ck, what a night..
Wonder who we get for the uk?
apart from the UK
Can't believe this has passed me by. Perhaps they should advertised it on EVERY FUCKING YOUTUBE CLIP I'VE LOOKED AT FOR THE LAST 2 WEEKS.
The Shins, Miike Snow, Lee Ronaldo, The Hives, Keane, ...
according to Songkick
Dare I say that the second half of PofM has grown on me, slightly. Still a little Hall & Oates at times tho'
little hall and oates.
