  • Tracklist
  • "Oh, Inverted World" was originally released on June 19, 2001, though Shins mastermind James Mercer had begun songwriting in 1998. The production of the record was done by the band themselves

    Among the best known of the album's eleven songs are "Caring Is Creepy "and" New Slang, "both of which appeared in the 2004 Zach Braff film" Garden State. "

    With its mix of indie rock, pop and folk and post-punk revival, as well as Mercer's unique voice, "Oh, Inverted World" is one of the most incisive releases the famed Sub Pop label has been associated with.

    Mercer said of "Oh, Inverted World," "This record gave me the life I never really dreamed of. It opened me up to the whole world and gave me validation. It's also something that's kind of a culmination for our band. You release the first record and it's so well received, but you're always trying to recapture that magic, I guess. We certainly succeeded in that, but we never quite got back the excitement that was around 'Oh, Inverted World'. It's a special moment when you're a new band and you have what seems like a new sound.
