English Beat-inspired track from... The SHINS?!

Check out this B-side (to Phantom Limb) by The Shins "Split Needles (Alt Version)". I was blown away to hear how rocking, energetic and almost ska-y it is! Especially if you've heard the original version. You can definitely hear "Mirror in the Bathroom" in there... plus I love the new-wavey keyboards... awesome.

"Wincing The Night Away" isn't out until January, but like most of the other evil pirates out there, I've been rocking it for the past couple of months. And... IT. IS. AWESOME.
