The Shins- The Past & Pending

The Past and the Pending - The Shins from Brian Fejer on Vimeo.

"As someone sets light to the first fire of autumn, We settle down to cut ourselves apart."

More from Brian Fejer's Vimeo page (channel?) This video is fucking awesome, the first time I saw this I had tears in my eyes, no shit!  There's no shortage of beautiful images on this video, each one a perfect fit.
"Held to the past too aware of the pending"

James Mercer is our greatest songwriter. The flag bearer, the one who left, the one we wish would return... love him or hate him, this song is scary good. 

"We've turned every stone and for all our inventions, In matters of love loss, we've no recourse at all."

This should be the official video for this song.  Brian Fejer has an eye for connecting visual and aural pieces, his work on The Past & Pending is nothing short of genius.

"Loiter the whole day through and lose yourself in lines dissecting love."

Wanderlust takes us down a path, bathed in soft light, awash with gentle breezes.
No one speaks, for there are no words to describe the moment. This air is so sweet,
I must stop to inhale and then exhale and let its intoxicating effects linger
