The Shins - Port Of Morrow

The Shins first album since 2007′s Wincing The Night Away is imminent, and is also 2-for-2 (see: “Simple Song” and “September.”) Today Port Of Morrow turns up a third listen with its opening track, “The Rifle’s Spiral.” It’s a lusher production than the others — note the many bleeps, followed by the equally numerous bloops — though essentially it is still James Mercer, catchy and thoughtful and somewhat existentially minded, on another one that should please Shins fans. Hear it here.

The Shins’ Port Of Morrow — their first record not for Sub Pop — is out 3/20 via Columbia/Aural Apothecary.
