The Restaurants This Critic Returned to on Her Own Time and Dime in 2014
Dude, where's your band? Clearing not wanting to share free clothes with anyone else, "The Shins" (or just James Mercer in a Levi's western shirt) respected the brand and recorded a cover of Squeeze's "Goodbye Girl" for this Levi's Pioneer session. Even if it involves a corporate jeans company, I'm of the opinion that anytime Squeeze gets attention, it's a good thing. The session also features a video, so you can watch Mercer in the studio and discuss the influence of Squeeze.
