Like any good older Millennial, The Shins changed my life. In fall 2006, I was an incoming college freshman who was still wearing braces. Two years prior, a film called Garden State was released and spoke to every internalized frustration I had about my small hometown in Florida clashing with my big dreams of Hollywood. Everything that I had thought about music and film existing on separate plains was suddenly flipped on itself. Reading interviews with Zach Braff, listening to him speak about the importance of meticulously crafting the soundtrack to his film – it changed the way I listened to music. It changed the way music moves me.
