Part 2 - New Slang (The Shins cover)
This song blew me away when I first heard it. I love the cryptic lyrics and the way he turns a phrase, almost waiting for the last minute to get the words out. It reminds me of sitting in Adam P. Gorman's flat overlooking the Northern Quarter in 2007, dreaming of getting back to Brooklyn to finish the first album. It was in this period that I wrote 'Desolate Icicle' and looking back you can definitely hear the influence of James Mercer on that song.
