The Shins - Wipe My Butt

So I just finished watching Season One of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to have nightmares for the next few weeks. In case you haven't heard of it, it's a non-animated Adult Swim series that serves up some of the weirdest comedy sketches ever created, drawing inspiration from the awkward and lo-fi brilliance of public access TV and YouTube.

For those who have already watched Season Two as well and find that they still want more, the clever marketing team over at Adult Swim have cooked up a little something extra for you. Tim and Eric Awesome Record, Great Songs! Volume One is a two-disc compilation that features all of the music from the show, including a few moderately amusing covers -- such as this version of "Wipe My Butt" performed by The Shins! Some of the songs stand on their own quite well, although for most of them, the accompanying visuals are essential for the full experience.

P.S. You can also find some additional tracks for free download on Tim and Eric's website.
