Wake up song for today -108

It’s been a rocky few months for The Shins, after lead singer James Mercer fired 50% of the band due to ‘aesthetic differences’ (or, as I like to call them – megalomaniac tendancies) and the band are now on ‘hold’ until at least 2011. It’s sad because The Shins have produced music of such a high standard over the last few years (you only have to skim through their backcatalogue to agree) and I was looking forward to another album to play repeatedly over the long, warm and happy summer months. This will just have to do instead! – PM

p.s. James Mercer has a new side project with Danger Mouse called Broken Bells, and they’ve just released their debut s/t album. Check it:
