B.T.W.F- More Flake Music

As a companion to the Shins pre-fame band, Flake Music's Spork EP, here's their full-length debut. This album, more than Spork, has more of the trademark sounds that soon would be heard (and critically acclaimed) from the Shins. When You Land Here, It's Time To Return was recorded in 1997 and very much could have passed as The Shin's debut as it was recorded while still known as Flake Music. In an interview with Pitchfork in May 2009, Shins (Flake Music) frontman James Mercer announced plans to re-release the album on his own record label. It's a very respectable CD that isn't quite as good as Oh, Inverted World or Chutes Too Narrow, but I prefer it to Wincing The Night Away.
It's well worth a listen!
