#NowPlaying: MG's Pick of the Week: The Shins (Guest Post)

The Shins are not a new band. In fact, if you've seen Garden State (and if you haven't, please rush out now) then you've been exposed to their magic.

This week they even played on Saturday Night Live, making the show legitimate since well ... when Bon Iver performed.

I've loved the Shins for a long time. They've got a beautifully unique sound, and for some reason no matter how happy their songs sound, they're still kind of sad, and I like that.

'Simple Song' is their latest single. I could share the cool official video, as it's pretty neat, but there's dialogue that cuts in and out, and you won't get the feel for it's greatness - which would be a shame.

Ah, The Shins. I do like them...I don't like, "for some reason no matter how happy their songs sound, they're still kind of sad, and I like that."....if anyone doubted your emo-ness, look no further. 


XOXO
