The Shins: Phantom Limb

The Shins' frontman, James Mercer, has the rare if not unique capacity to be deeply sincere while singing lyrics that you can't really understand. Maybe it's because his melodies are so exquisite, and interesting--in a way they are more like classical motifs than pop melodies: artfully crafted lines that link together, and recur through the piece. If this is an indication of what's in store on the new CD (due out in January), we're in for another treat.
