THE SHINS - OH, INVERTED WORLD VINYL RE-ISSUE (LTD. ED. MINT)
LIMITED EDITION MINT VINYL RE-ISSUE
Release Date: 30th March 2018
Limited edition mint coloured vinyl re-issue of this absolute 00s indie-rock classic that would go on to be the template for the sound of indie for many years to come - but it was The Shin's Oh, Inverted World that did the 60s-inspired, jingle-jangle guitar pop sound better than anyone! Re-live this brilliant lo-fi gem all over again or find out why it's gone down in indie folklore and referenced so much in films such as Garden State for yourself. Trust us - you won't regret it!
For Fans Of: Beach Boys, The Kinks, Local Natives, Band of Horses
"The Shins' first full-length is a definitive indie rock album of the 2000s not just because of its thoughtful, tuneful songs, but also because of the vivid portrait it painted of indie culture. Oh, Inverted World is the sound of realizing there's more to life than being a smart-aleck - but also not being ready to open up completely. Caring might be creepy, but it's hard to avoid; Oh, Inverted World chronicles this post-ironic vulnerability, wrapping it in jangly guitar pop that echoes the Kinks, Zombies, and Beach Boys. All of Oh, Inverted World's songs hang together in an immensely satisfying way. Oh, Inverted World is so full of ideas and emotions, and so fully realized, that it’s hard to believe it's just 33 minutes long. Whether or not the album lives up to the breathless "It’ll change your life!" claims made about it in Garden State, the less ironic direction of 2000s indie begins here."
