A Comet Appears To play music for a long time, you have to surprise the people that love you-while also surprising yourself. Recorded in singerguitarist James Mercers basement studio, Phil Eks Seattle digs, and in Oregon City with veteran producer Joe Chiccarelli Beck, U2, Wincing the Night Away is The Shins third full-length album. Its also the sound of a band growing up an. Wincing the Night Away is The Shins third studio album, and deals with front mans James Mercer insomnia and the human condition. Recorded in 2006 and released in early 2007, the record was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album at the 07 Grammys. The album was produced by veteran Joe Chiccarelli, with help from producer Phil Ek on three of the songs Australia, Phantom Limb, and Girl Sailor. It was also recorded in Eks home. Mercer had approached Chiccarelli for advice on the new album early in the process, as he had become frustrated by the album coming along less efficiently than h. Wincing the Night Away is the sound of the Shins acknowledging where they've been and moving on to new territory, and while it probably won't change your life, it probably will make it more enjoyable - and, most likely, that's all the Shins wanted to do in the first place. Track Listing. The first song off of The Shins' 2007 album Wincing the Night Away. Instead, Wincing the Night Away feels labored.

Wincing the Night Away. Sub Pop. While indie rock has embraced grander and more elaborate productions, the Shins have remained unlikely champions of uncertainty and understatement. Unlike many of their meteorically successful indie peers, the Shins don't want to change your life- and that's a good thing, because the band's biggest strength is an uncanny gift for conjuring a deep, vivid, and palpable sense of the familiar.

They've channeled The Smiths and some other early 80's new wave sounds into their quirky modern indie rock spirit to create what is, in my humble opinion, a sheer masterpiece. This album is epic
