Sometimes things sound a lot clearer in retrospect.
You gotta hear this soundtrack. It'll change your life.
James Mercer fans who long for new Shins material will have to continue waiting, but they can seek solace in some vintage material from his band before the Shins, Flake Music.
Broken Bells told an intergalactic love story last year with their two-part video series for two songs from their latest, 'After the Disco,' and now they're bringing the extraterrestrial theme to their new video for 'Control.'
Even though Shins frontman James Mercer has been busy with Broken Bells lately, his full-time band found time to record a new song for Zach Braff's new movie, 'Wish I Was Here.'
The trailer for Zach Braff’s follow-up to 'Garden State,' 'Wish I Was Here,' features a new Shins song.
Is ‘New Slang’ a life-altering song? No. Is anything on the Shins’ debut album? No. The band doesn’t make life-changing music. But it does make finely crafted indie-pop.
Aimee Mann recently wrapped up a month-long North American trek with Ted Leo, and to celebrate, she swung by the ABC studios of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' last night (Nov. 19) to perform two songs: 'Labrador' and 'Living a Lie,' both from her 'Charmer' album, which dropped in September. The album version of 'Living a Lie' featured guest vocals from James Mercer of the Shins, and while Ted Leo had been handling the part during the recent tour, none other than Mercer himself turned up for the 'Kimmel!' take.
