The Shins
The year’s most unlikely chart-botherers continue the most jangly bid for world domination ever. If you’ve already fallen under the band’s spell, you’ll know that here is another in their seemingly endless batch of catchy and lyrically obtuse gems, though it’s by no means the best track on the utterly splendid ‘Wincing The Night Away’ LP. Buy that instead – and then let us know why it’s called ‘Australia’, ’cos we still have absolutely no fucking idea why.
