The Shins - Chutes Too Narrow (Ltd Coloured Vinyl)
The Shins – Chutes Too Narrow. Released via Sub Pop on Orange Vinyl.
Hailing from Albuquerque, NM, The Shins sprung from the ashes of Flake / Flake Music in 1997 (though those previous incarnations date back nearly a decade) – same members, different instruments, different approach.
Counterpoint guitars gave way to a single guitar pitted against calculated keyboard passages; swarming indie rock machinations led to pop-based melodic endeavours.
