album of the day: The Shins – Wincing The Night Away

28Aug08

Song Recommendations: Australia, Turn On Me, Phantom Limb, Split Needles, A Comet Appears

I was introduced to this band from yesterday’s album of the day, Garden State, where the songs New Slang and Caring Is Creepy actually got me really interested into some Indie sounds. The Shins is the definition of Indie rock in my opinion. Its such a broad category, but they are the first band I think of when Indie is thrown out there. Wincing The Night Away is their third major release, and debuted on the Billboard at #2. It was also nominated last year for a Grammy. So if you’re lookin’ to break away from your normal listening habits, and have always wanted to like an “indie” band, The Shins are a good start. So check em out!

Enjoy!
