B-Side and Live Recording. Dec 20 2004
By Jeff Perkins - Published on
Format: Audio CD
First, I'd like to let everyone know that this is not only available as an import, it is also available domestically at indie-only music stores.

The first track is "Fighting in a Sack," which is the exact same mix as the one off of the incredible album "Chutes Too Narrow."

"Baby Boomarang" is definitely a B-side track from "Chutes Too Narrow." It's not a bad song at all, but it does not fit with the feel and overall sound of the album itself. Songs like this will be played at full length concerts, since it has more power backing it than the album itself.

The final audio track, a live recording of "New Slang" is definitely designed to hook in people who have fallen in love with the movie and the sounds of "Garden State." I am a huge Iron&Wine fan, but was sorely disappointed by this track. Recorded at the semi-intimate Knitting Factory in LA, the recording lacks the proper mastering of a well-recorded live track, and although the CD single says Iron&Wine is featured on the track, it is not pronounced at all. Vocally he blends in with the band, and instrumentally was suspicioiusly absent.

This CD-single also includes a video for the song "So Says I," which is quite bizarre in that it is primitively computer animated and seems to profile 20th century Russia with the use of penguins. Not a great music video, but just another perk of this single.

Personally, I'm glad I have it for the song "Baby Boomerang," and I would recommend it to any true Shins fan, but for anyone else it will be a poor CD investment.

Shins doing T. Rex = totally awesome Dec 20 2004
By Justin Robinson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
this cd single is not worth the money, but if you are one of those dorks who won't illegally download stuff then i recommend getting it for the awesome cover of the T. Rex classic "Baby Boomerang".
