description

Sub Pop proudly presents Wincing The Night Away re-issued/re-pressed on silver coloured vinyl. What did Sub Pop say of Wincing the Night Away back in 2007, you ask? Here it is: To play music for a long time, you have to surprise the people that love you-while also surprising yourself.

Recorded in singer/guitarist James Mercer's basement studio, Phil Ek's Seattle digs, and in Oregon City with veteran producer Joe Chiccarelli (Beck, U2), Wincing the Night Away is The Shins' third full-length album.

It's also the sound of a band growing up and out. Mercer's infectious, indelible melodic style is still at the core, and unfaltering.

But anything can happen around it-and in this case, it does. While the vocals channel the spirit of Morrissey, "Sea Legs" pairs a loping hip-hop beat with lush melody and searing guitars.

Elsewhere the band toys with tweaked-out, liquid piano steeped in kaleidoscopic strings ("Red Rabbit"); fractured synth samples ("Spilt Needles"); gauzy, arpeggiated keyboards cloaking thunderous anthems ("Sleeping Lessons"); and, taking cues from early Jesus and Mary Chain albums, sweeping, fuzz-toned epics ("Phantom Limb").

Finally, "Turn on Me," "Girl Sailor" and "Australia" are the lilting, thrilling, rollicking, rock-solid pop songs we've all come to covet from The Shins.

Consider yourself surprised.
