In the late Nineties, James Mercer was just another indie-rock journeyman, living in Albuquerque with a head full of melodies. This crisply remastered 1997 set is a lost Shins album in all but name: Backed by the same crew who joined him on early Shins outings, Mercer was already writing top-shelf sad-sack anthems. "Deluca" and "Blast Valve" have all the wounded sweetness with a touch more 120 Minutes edge.
