The latest video from the Shins very-good-to-great LP Port Of Morrow registers in a similar fashion to the Shins weakest songs: no frills but still perfectly pleasant. This is fine, because when the band really hits it song or video-wise, it’s a totally memorable affair. (Case in point on both fronts: “The Rifle’s Spiral.”) Here, though, it’s just the Shins at band practice, where the most interesting thing aside from how many guitars James Mercer has laying around everywhere is that they look like nice people who like each other and their music and would be pleasant to hang out with. (This Funny Or Die thing also helps prove that point.) Watch:
Port Of Morrow is out via Sub Pop.
