The saviours of popmusic? Well, we're not talking about searching any idols or the newest compilation by some music-station, we're talking about pop. Like THE BEATLES or PAVEMENT. Does anybody remember the concept of popmusic? Melodies like candy that won't go away and leave you wanting some more? Hooklines and choruses that mould into your brains and keep sticking there? That's exactly what THE SHINS did on their second album "Chutes Too Narrow" on Sub Pop Records, ten shining pearls (you'll proudly be the swine, which these were thrown before) in 30 minutes give a brief yet entirely scintillanting glimpse at this chiming, reflective and perfectly skewed pop innovation. THE SHINS, the saviours of pop? Obviously. No more questions.
