The Shins - Simple Song

James Mercer is somewhat fresh off of his 2010 project with Danger Mouse, Broken Bells. While I enjoyed it, I’ll admit that Mercer wasn’t on the top of his songwriting game. However, he responded with The Shins’ newest release, Port of Morrow. It’s one of my favorites so far this year. This is the second track, and has been floating around for a little while now. The intro song had a Broken Bells-type feel, showing what Mercer was emerging from with his music. This was a nice change of pace. I could go on about all of the things that he does right with this one, but I’m not sure I could sum it up in a short time. Instead, have a listen. You won’t regret it.

Enjoy!
