That aforementioned Shins track...and another great cover...



Thanks to good ol' Gav nudging me, I thought I'd post that cover of The Postal Service's 'We Will Become Silhouettes' done by The Shins.

The Shins -'We Will Become Silhouettes.' mp3

It's a bit busy here, what with so many reviews to get up here, the record company making progress, the day job starting again this week....but be patient, all will be rewarded.

...so why not Bonnie 'Prince' Billy doing 'Puff The Magic Dragon?'

Me too! I've enjoyed some Death Cab stuff (The Sound Of Settling, I Will Follow You into the Dark, Company Calls, Title And Registration and others) but never an album from start to finish.

Figurine are a different matter however. My favourite electronic band by far. I'm not as fond of his more recent work (Dntel, James Figurine*), but I really don't think electronic indie-pop can be done any better than the stuff Figurine produced.

* Ok, '55566688833' is fabarooni!

Death Cab released new album 'Narrow Stairs' quite recently. More of the same kind of stuff, I thought.
