THE SHINS – PORT OF MORROW

Following in the footsteps of Tim Freedman, Shin's main man James Mercer has done away with not only the band one might previously have called The Shins, but even the idea of a band, as the studio doors revolve swiftly in the breeze of musicians, arriving and departing by the track-load.
