The Shins

The Shins might just be the most universally liked indie rock band since Pavement. The Albuquerque (NM) band's second record -- "Chutes Too Narrow" (Sub Pop) -- surprised everybody by being as good (if not better) than 2001's "Oh, Inverted World." The band's unassuming rock can be deceptively simple, weaving elements of Brit-pop, chamber pop and Americana into lyrically challenging folk ditties. Host Tim vonHolten chats with these four very affable young men before their November 22nd show at The Granada.
