The Shins are back
American indie rock darlings, the Shins, are back with their 4th album, Port of Morrow. Behind the group, there’s a soul mastermind, James Mercer. The new album, out yesterday, was entirely written and arranged by Mercer. Some were unreleased songs reworked. He claims to have kept all of his old demos in a trunk. The melodies are as beautiful and pop as ever. Sometimes the production is a little syrupy, but all in all, it’s a good album.
