It's the best Shins song I've heard in awhile.

Can't you just hate Zac Braff? The Shins are a solid band.

They didn't even pretend to be punk!

They sound like the ur-example of indie bands for and by the most boring, milquetoast white suburban teenagers who have nothing to express beyond their annoying ennui.

Fine. Whatever. They sound like indie Beach Boys to me. I think he's a good singer.

The Shins (and Broken Bells)have recorded some great stuff, notably Chutes Too Narrow. They also have recorded what Batlord refers to as boring and milquetoast- Like that song about Rutherford B. Hayes

No, I just don't care about them enough to get in an argument. I like listening to them. But they are universe-building gods like Metallica is.
