The Shins’ most recent album, Wincing The Night Away, was released thirty-seven years ago. Or at least it feels like it was, because no matter where we go–bars, parties, dog funerals, bars–we cannot escape hearing it in the background. Enough already! We realize the record fits into that cool-but-not-inaccessible category preferred by soundtrack supervisors and barkeeps everywhere, but would it kill you to throw on some Pointer Sisters or Adam Ant or something?
Anyhoo, the group has just released a new import-only EP for “Australia,” and it’s B/W a mellow (but not too snoozy) remix of “Sleeping Lessons.” So consider this the first Shins song in months that has not been shoved into your ears, and be prepared to be sick of it within three weeks or so:
