Thanks to good ol’ Gav nudging me, I thought I’d post that cover of The Postal Service’s ‘We Will Become Silhouettes’ done by The Shins.

It’s a bit busy here, what with so many reviews to get up here, the record company making progress, the day job starting again this week….but be patient, all will be rewarded.
…so why not Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy doing ‘Puff The Magic Dragon?’
