Anyone dig The Shins?

Seems I'm the only person I know that loves this band. I don't even know if they are still together. Their only CD came out in 2001.

Yeah, I've had Oh, Inverted World! for a year or so now and love it. It has a "summer" feel to it.

I, too, enjoyed Oh, Inverted World! (Will have to find a copy of my own at some point.) I read somewhere that they'll have a new album out in 2003.

Definitely. I saw them and heard of them for the first time last summer in Seattle at the Bumbershoot Festival, and really enjoyed them so I picked up the CD, which is even better (their sound didn't translate as well in a packed arena for me). Kind of Beach Boys-meets-Guided By Voices pop, with some amazing lyrics I'm still soaking up. I'm really eager for their next album to see what they do next. They have potential for greatness.

I don't particulary care for all their songs. I think they're an acquired taste. However, "Caring is Creepy" hit me like a ton of bricks. I LOVE this song.

I love each and every song on the CD. They change up styles so many times. There is definitely one song that is a perfect Brian Wilson homage. The only other band that grabbed me like this recently was Wilco. Good company.

Check out the band before they called themselves "The Shins" . . . their actual first CD was under the name
Flake Music entitled "When You Land Here It's Time to Return". It's very hard to come by but worth trying to track down.

Go to for more info.

P.S. I tracked down "limited quantities" in stock at
$10.46 with the 20% coupon (FYE20SAVINGS) it comes to $8.37 + tax in applicable states (free shipping with $49 purchase)
