G! and I listened to the new disc by The Shins(one of her favorites) yesterday on the way home from West Leb. Wincing the Night Away is a really good solid effort from the band that is due to drop this Tuesday. To my ear there isn't any big shift in what the band is doing on this new album. I can't imagine the pressure on the band with this release and I can see the logic in not switching up your style a great deal at this point in your career. That being said there are some really good songs on this disc.
