Oh Inverted World CD

The eagerly anticipated debut album (LP version released on Omnibus). Hailing from Albuquerque, NM, The Shins sprung from the ashes of Southwestern fuzz-pop heroes Flake Music in 1997 (though the previous incarnation dates back nearly a decade) - same four members, different instruments, different approach. Counterpoint guitars have given way to a single guitar pitted against calculated keyboard passages; swarming indie rock machinations led to pop-based melodic endeavors (who knew?). Over the past year, The Shins toured heavily with MODEST MOUSE, 764-HERO and CALIFONE and will be on the road with MODEST MOUSE through much of the summer and fall. Recently completed an East Coast tour with the RED HOUSE PAINTERS, and kicked off a Swedish music festival with WEEZER. The Shins have three previously released 7" singles on Omnibus and Sub Pop, and are featured on an upcoming Omnibus CD Sampler
