Shins - Wincing The Night Away

UPC: 098787070514
Availability: IN STOCK

The Shins' third album Wincing The Night Away is the sound of a band growing up and out. The 2007 record features the singles "Phantom Limb", "Australia", "Turn on Me" and "Sea Legs".

James Mercer's infectious, indelible melodic style is still at the core, but on various songs he also channels a Morrissey vibe, pairs a hip-hop beat with lush melodic lines and searing guitars, toys with tweaked-out piano steeped in psychedelic strings, utilizes fractured synth samples, adds gauzy, arpeggiated keyboards that cloak thunderous anthems, and even takes cues from early Jesus And Mary Chain sweeping, fuzz-toned epics.

Heavyweight vinyl produced by Sup Pop Records in 2007. May include download card.
