New Shins!!!


I’m so excited to finally get to post this. The new Shins disc “Wincing the Night Away” will be out January 7, but now you can download their new single, “Phantom Limbs.” This song is going to make everyone remember why they love The Shins, and perk up the ears of new fans. Be prepared to be frustrated in February when people start asking you if you’ve heard of The Shins.

Can Joann


I don’t know much about Can Joann. Their guitarist, Ryan Benjamin emailed me with a nice note and a couple of tracks. I have to say I am impressed. I’ve really been waiting for the next DIY band to come on the scene and give me something to look forward to. Can Joann is that band.

Can Joann is from Chapel Hill / Raleigh, North Carolina (yes, North Carolina is the new Montreal for upcoming artists). They made the scene with an EP in 2005 and have since recorded a full length entitled “Hurt People Hurt People.” They’re getting a lot of press these days, so a tour can’t be far away. Look for them coming to your area soon.

Listen to these tracks, then head on over to iTunes and purchase the disc!

Sorry for the delay

Many excuses:

Out of town
EZArchive Sucks
Blew all of the bandwidth on the Halloween Playlist
Toying with self-hosting

But Show Me Music is getting bigger and better. Stay tuned…
