Tune into the WB tonite (4/13) & catch The Shins shilling for the very funny Gilmore Girls. In this episode, apparently the junior Gilmore girl is off on spring break (I'm haunted by faint memories of 90210) from Yale and she goes to see everyone's favorite Sub Pop indie popsters. Good choice as always, Rory.
The lead-off track from 2003's outstanding Chutes Too Narrow was immediately my favorite. It has its moments of pop bliss, but it also has its moments of balls out rock. Just like I like 'em.
Here's a Shins cover of The Postal Service's "We Will Become Silhouettes" from that band's Such Great Heights single EP. It's a simple acoustic, de-electrofied version of Ben Gibbard/Jimmy Tamborello's lovely ponderings about nuclear paranoia & hiding out in a bomb shelter.
BTW: I got back into town yesterday (4/12) afternoon after an enjoyable weekend in Chitown. I'll have some more on recent events past once I find enough time to write up a proper wrap-up.
