7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 6th November 2014
“Spelled in Bones” is just as melodic but livelier than its predecessor “Mouthfuls”. It is less folky, more indie-pop. “Lives of Crime” and “Silent Life” are a superb opening couplet, the upbeat nature adds a Beatles-esque quality to what was already a beautiful sound with soaring harmonies. There are also more songs on here that will please Shins fans, “TV Waves”, “Legs of Bees” and “Born in the 70s”, specifically. “The Wind That Blew My Heart Away” adds Beach Boys-style harmonies to the mix. I prefer “Mouthfuls” but this is still a decent album.
