FINALLY! The Shins video to “Simple Song” is out!

One of the best music videos I have seen in a long, long time… yeah, I’m sure you hear this all the time, BUT THIS IS THE ONE! If you missed the release of The Shins video “Simple Song”, take a few minutes from your ever so busy day, and experience the emotional rollercoaster that the Shins take you on. You’ll start with a bit of sorrow, and quickly gain an energetic boost of excitement, followed by remorse, and joyfully wrapping it up with the great feeling of belonging to a family.
I know… I’ve said too much and should’ve give the “Spoiler Alert”, but oh well, you’ll watch it anyways.
Another gem to check out at SXSW 2012.
ENJOY!

The Shins have released the 3rd track off of their upcoming album, Port of Morrow. This track, titled “The Rifle’s Spiral”, has been played by The Shins at their live shows since 2009, and will finally be available on an album. The song is really a different sound for The Shins, but different in the direction of genius. With an Oingo Boingo type of feel to it, “The Rifle’s Spiral” will have fans bouncing away at their shows and get you dancing right in your living room.

Seconds on the Shins please… “September”(B-side)

The Shins: “September” (b-side of “Simple Song” 7”) from Record Store Day on Vimeo.

What an amazing surprise today, The Shins have granted their fans with a second wish,”September”, the B-side to “Simple Song”. They have done it yet again, touching on personal experiences that many of us unknowingly share. It’s a reflection on oneself and makes you think whats really important to someone you truly care for. Have a listen, and take care.
