Richard Swift
The Hex

Richard Swift sadly died on 3rd July, 2018. He was 41 years old. The gifted musician, songwriter, producer and filmmaker had worked with a number of acts in his career including Damien Jurado, The Shins, Foxygen (producing their first and best album) and The Black Keys. The Hex is Swift's final album which he completed shortly before his death. He put everything into this record - from cathartic songs about his late sister and mother to a patchwork of influences such as Doo-Wop, Wall of Sound, Funkadelic, Captain Beefheart, Bo Diddley and Link Wray. It’s a real shame that it will be his last album, but it looks like he has unwittingly saved the best until last. LP and CD on Secretly Canadian.

The Worms Heart

The creative whizz behind The Shins, James Mercer had an itch he needed to scratch following the recording of their last album, Heartworms, and scratch it he did. He re-recorded the album, introducing acoustic guitars and a slower tempo to fast tracks and injecting the slower tracks with a bit of rock oomph. The Worms Heart was born, a reversal of the original album in every way. LP and Cd on Columbia.

The Shins
Heartworms

Once brilliant, the Shins have remained purveyors of literate twisty guitar pop headed up by James Mercer's elasticated voice.  Though recent records have been shinier and slicker than the charming first couple of records they can usually be relied upon to add a few more tuneful earworms to the world's supply.

Chutes Too Narrow

New Mexico group The Shins deal in melodic, sprightly indie pop. They are best known for their first two albums 'Oh, Inverted World' and 'Chutes Too Narrow', a pair which are often considered as some of the best indie records of the early 2000s. They've got all sorts of other little interesting flourishes too, from straight up indie rock, poppy folk and mild psychedelia.

The Shins
Oh, Inverted World

Here's the debut album from The Shins, a group oddly immortalised in Scrubs' film 'Garden State'. All folky, pastoral indie pop and introspective, jangly rock, 'Oh, Inverted World' is considered one the US indie group's finest moments. This one contains 'New Slang', 'Sphagnum Esplanade' and 'Your Algebra'.
