The Shins but not

Yesterday, while searching for the Shins album Oh, Inverted World on Spotify in order to help FFS’s resident owl Brian make his weekly playlist (he doesn’t have opposable thumbs, which makes computer-use tricky, you see) I discovered this:

Pickin’ On Series – The Bluegrass Tribute To The Shins

It’s amazing. Every track makes me smile like a loon. The lyrics are really brought to the fore, too, somehow. I wouldn’t swap it for the Mercer-performed originals in a million years, but it’s a brilliant addition.

Give it a listen.
