Watch James Mercer Do An Unplugged “September”

We’ve already heard a bunch of songs from the new Shins comeback album Port Of Morrow: “Simple Song,” “The Rifle’s Spiral,” an acoustic version of “It’s Only Life,” and, most relevant to this post, the lovely and lilting “September.” Shins frontman and sole permanent member James Mercer played an acoustic version of that last one in a session for the Portland radio station KINK (seriously, those are its call letters), and we’ve got video of it below.

Port Of Morrow is out 3/20 on Columbia/Aural Apothecary. And yes, I do realize full well that Mercer is making one hell of a poopface in that screencap.
