I'm still on winter break and not quite focused, so pardon my continuing obsession with The Shins. Let's see if we can get a little reflection going anyway. Question: what makes their music so damned sticky?! I adored the song below (from Chutes Too Narrow) the very first time I heard it. This morning I woke up literally hearing it. What gives, and why is it that so many Shins songs are so immediately addictive? If you wanted to write a very sticky song, how would you do it? Oh hell, let's just listen. My new goal: see The Shins next time they go on tour.
