The Shins+Man Man
"This song will change your life,” said Natalie Portman's Sam to Zach Braff's Andrew as she played “New Slang” for him in 2004's quintessential indie classic Garden State. A more accurate statement would've been that Sam and Andrew would change the Shins' lives, as a spot on the Grammy-award winning soundtrack helped catapult the dreamy indie group into mainstream success and scored a now-classic movie scene. After a five year break from making music, the Shins released Port of Morrow, worth a listen while we all wait to see what bands are going to get a Zach Braff seal of approval and career kickstart in his next project.
