Anyone using ITunes probably knows the joy of the accidental shuffle, when you've forgotten it's on, and then it hits you when you least expect it. Anyway, today it led me back to a song I haven't listened to in far too long by the Shins. The Shins seem to be in a troublesome place recently, having just replaced two members, and two years since their last release, which I liked, but was received lukewarmly in general. I hope they can come back and make music like this again, because while the indie world clearly doesn't need them, they could certainly use these guys back as the kings they once were. This is the closer off their debut, "Oh, Inverted World."
