Flake Music/The Shins
In 1997, an unknown band called Flake Music released their overlooked album "When You Land Here, It's Time To Return". It was bright and sunny pop music that at times made Belle and Sebastian sound emo. And then...Flake Music disappeared. They didn't have a farewell tour. There was no saddened blog entries. Just one great album. However, four years later in 2001, Flake Music released another full length album after a few EPs...but with a different name and record label, and even holding different instruments. Flake Music became The Shins, one of the great bands of the 2000's. (Is that how you say it?) Shiny happy pop music is back. And the lone Flake Music release is still overlooked and fantastic...so here is a track to remember them by.
