I first heard The Shins drifting over the radio in coffee@bricklane, on my way back from PSP Beautiful Script at the Old Truman Brewery. New Slang sounded like it was from another time…I thought I was listening to a mutated Simon and Garfunkel!
The first single from upcoming album Wincing The Night Away, is currently available as a free download from Sub Pop…it’s a little The Beach Boys 🙂
You can download Phantom Limb here (5.7mb, 160kbps, MP3) and Split Needles here (3mb, 160kbps, MP3).
UPDATE: The video for Phantom Limb was constructed from the digicam and cameraphone contributions of fans at a Shins gig,,,
Very nice. Thanks for the music. Nice site, too.
