The Bluegrass Tribute to the Shins reinterprets the band’s progressive pop sound, giving their songs a refreshingly rural twist. The Shins’ melodies and harmonies lend themselves perfectly to these beautifully crafted, countrified covers. Banjo, mandolin, and acoustic guitar combine to enhance the Shins’ organic spirit. James Mercer’s lyrics are given new life when they are belted out with a distinctly bluegrass passion. This album gives a discernible new flavor to old favorites.
