New Music Monday
By Mike Bailey Those that know me are aware of my passion for new music. I've decided to share some of my favorite discoveries in a weekly blog post. I'll do my best to pull from all genres, though I'm sure my fondness for indie rock will often win out... This week we get to hear a new track by the Shins. The Shins are a band from Portland, OR that gained a huge following when their music was used to soundtrack much of the 2004 film, Garden State. Their new album, Port of Morrow, comes out March 20th, you can listen to the first single, Simple Song, by clicking on the link below (web designers take note the nice reel-to-reel audio player that allows you to reverse the track!). http://simplesong.theshins.com/ Also, back in September the Shins did a nice cover of Pink Floyd's , Breathe, as part of "Pink Floyd Week" on the Jimmy Fallon show - watch that video here: http://www.twentyfourbit.com/post/10720338411/the-shins-cover-pink-floyd-on-fallon-james Enjoy!
