The Shins just announced that they’ll be postponing the release of their new album, Wincing the Night Away, until January 2007. If any of you are feeling the pains of longing, I’ve rounded up some of the new songs they’ve been playing live to help ease your pain.
MP3s removed by request of the band.
MP3: The Shins – Phantom (Live at the Hollywood Bowl)
MP3: The Shins – Circus Walk (Live at the Hollywood Bowl)
MP3: The Shins – Australia (Live at the Hollywood Bowl)
MP3: The Shins – Circus Walk (01/07/06)
(I like this version a lot better)
MP3: James Mercer – Won One Too Many Fights (10/10/04)
Anyone have a clear favorite? So far I think it’s toss up between “Circus Walk” and “Won One Too Many Fights.”
