i was a bit disappointed at first when i heard for the first time (the original song), i gotta say the rock cover they did for this song for the teaser trailer for the new mechwarrior game was a lot better.
the teaser music:
It's all written in the ancient scrolls of Vectron, by Vectron himself in the first age of Vectron!...
Eh.. I was excited for new Shins.. then I heard the album and well.. there's a couple good tracks.. and it sounds shins-y.. but its not.. I heard that after his experience with Broken Bells he got a producer to play with it this time.. I think that's what it is.. another finger in the pie made it not quite right. They are coming to Australia mid year I think so will try my damn hardest to get tix.. shit will sell out like crazy though so I'm not getting my hopes up.. They better do actual shows too, not just a festival run.

Jukebox the Ghost finally put out their first single for their new album. It's all kinds of perfect.
If you don't know Jukebox the Ghost yet, they're fantastic. Piano based indie rock, and the pianist Ben Thornewill writes amazing songs (he writes half of them, the guitarist writes the other half). He's a huge musical idol for me. The new album is too far away!!
I see you driving 'round town with the girl I love And I'm like, haiku
