The Shins did an amazing job post Garden State.
Wincing The Night Away may possibly be their best work yet.

Garden State is an amazing movie, I haven't heard Wincing the Night Away.

It was nominated for a Grammy but I think The White Stripes' Icky Thump won.

It's good. I'd suggest downloading Australia or Phantom Limb if you don't want to get the whole album.

The Shins are really good. Personally I like Chutes to Narrow, however I havent listened to Wincing the Night Away but maybe a couple of times.

Has anyone here checked you Flake Music? I've picked up all of The Shins' albums and thoroughly enjoy everything, but I recently have began a search to find their original band's album. I'd like to purchase it instead of downloading.

Its pretty rare that a band can have ONE album that you can listen to all the way through without feeling the need to skip tracks. All three Shins albums are like this. I like how they went for a more upbeat crisp sound for the second album and then for the third one went a little more melodic and dreary to return to the form of the first album. I don't think there is a band to compare to them out there. If you don't start the second album and hear that guitar riff go into the "Whoo!" and not start feeling your whole body get into Kissing the Lipless then you probably need to take anti-depressants or something. A wonderful band, that probably not enough praise is put upon.

In fact New Slang is on my 25 songs of the modern rock era you must hear before you die list. And I am fortunate enough to have not heard of them by Watching Garden State, which would have just been a vomitous occasion.
