The Shins

The most important US indie band of recent times joined Transgressive for their classic third album ‘Wincing the Night Away'.

Released by our friends Sub Pop around the rest of the world, this album saw James Mercer pushing his songwriting into new areas and featured the unforgettable songs ‘Phantom Limb', ‘Turn on Me' and ‘Australia'.

The first release on Transgressive was an individually made 7" with a Polaroid taken by each member of the band, and we brought them over for some classic shows, including their biggest sell-out gig to date at the mammoth Hammersmith Apollo. Truly an awesome band.
