THE SHINS

James Mercer released "Heartworms" in March 2017. As a creative exercise, during those recording sessions, he flipped every song on its head, to re-record each song in the opposite way to the originals - Songs that were more rock & uptempo became slower & more acoustic, whilst the songs that were acoustic & slower in tempo, became more rocky & upbeat.

STAFF COMMENTS

says: How impressive that Mercer can remake a superb addition to his canon, but reversed. How does that work? Well, it works very well as it goes and adds a layer of intreague to these already superb compositions.

The Shins

Wincing The Night Away

    It could be said that The Shins’ third album, ‘Wincing The Night Away’, was one of the most heavily anticipated record of 2007. Post ‘Garden State’ notoriety, the band have reached beyond their indie-darling status to something approaching mainstream recognition.

    James Mercer returns with the much anticipated fourth album from The Shins. Recorded in LA and Portland last year, as well as providing his distinctive vocals, James also plays the majority of the instrumentation on the album too.



    STAFF COMMENTS

    says: Big, clear, crisp pop, with enough of a twist to keep us lot happy. James Mercer has simply become an outstanding songwriter.

    The Shins

    Oh, Inverted World

      The Shins carry the indie rock torch with their own subtle orchestral stamp. Think the pop side of Built To Spill or a more out-there Beachwod Sparks. Perfect pop sounds with an edge of weirdness.
