RiYL: Gnarls Barkley, Hot Chip

Expert producer Danger Mouse (of Gnarls Barkley/Grey Album fame) rocks the house with synth/drums/bass guitar. Shins vocalist smoothly/gently delivers Beatle'esque lyrics.

1. ** Poppy midtempo with synths, drums, 1st single. Solid + catchy.
2. ** Uptempo choruses with Gnarls Barkley sounds.
3. Downtempo Beatles sound.
4. ** Clap happy pop with falsetto vox + fx. Hot Chip?
5. More mellow. Strings.
6. Midtempo "Six Underground," Zero 7? effected vox.
7. Chill downtempo acoustic guitar, soft drumming + vocal harmonies
8. ** Midtempo pop, piano, smooth vox
9. ** Hippy "Monkees" organ, Poppy uptempo, light synths, sfx, epic synth buildup
10. *** Soft strings intro b4 the upbeat rock. Standout lyrics. Synth chord fade out
