The Shins - Saint Simon

In a continued nod to the greatness that is Sub Pop Records, on the occasion of their twentieth anniversay, I bring you, The Shins. While touring with Modest Mouse in the early minutes of this decade, The Shins were approached by a Sub Pop representative, who eventually offered to release their debut album. What a move it was for SP and what a journey it's been for The Shins, whose latest album, Wincing the Night Away, sold more copies in its first week than any Sub Pop album ever had before. That success and fan base was built on songs like this one, from the 2001 debut, Chutes Too Narrow.
