Today’s song is The Shins’ New Slang. It is found on the album “Oh, Inverted World”. It is quite possibly their best song, and a true acoustic pop/rock masterpiece. As usual with songs that hit home so hard, there is an alluring simpleness to the song, that was probably incredibly hard to achieve. What did Shakespeare say? “Brevity is the soul of wit”…? Well then, in music, simpleness is the soul of the remarkable. Or at least it can be. And if you need any further proof, maybe just play this song a couple more times. Enjoy!
