The shins

Amazing song has that old sounds to it which I like and very different, but good.

Fall of 82

The best!!!!!

If you're a big fan of psychedelic rock...

...than these remixes are perfect for you! Richard Swift's production impact on Port of Morrow was amazing, and underrated, with all of the vintage synthesizer sounds that he added in- and now it's his big time to shine!

"No Way Down" is definitely the poppier of the two, with the cowbell drum loops and newly added guitar segments. It makes you feel just like you're floating in a big, fluffy, cloud- however, it in no way tops the original or the version performed on "From the Basement."

Now as for "Fall of '82"- completely different story. This remix feels so much more like a John Lennon solo song than a Shins song, and that's not a bad thing. The crunchy guitars, James Mercer's echoed vocals, the organs- it's all perfect! One of my favorite parts is the very end, which sounds a lot like Radiohead's "Treefingers." It almost tops the original version, but not quite.

Both remixes are very good, and I'd love to see Richard Swift remix/produce an entire Shins album, new or old. I highly suggest getting them, especially if you're working on a B-Side Collection of the Shins.
