[INDIE FOR THE AGES] It took five years between albums for the Shins to release its fourth LP, but James Mercer and his band are stronger than ever. With a piqued interest in the production end of recording, which can be partially credited to his stint in Broken Bells with super producer Brian Burton (aka Danger Mouse), Mercer’s vision culminates in immersive, detail-oriented, artfully crafted album Port of Morrow. But no matter how Mercer’s influences have shifted, he’s managed to do the things that make a musician exceptional: create music that matches the times without conforming to the trends—music that gets shinier and cleaner with each album, but at its core exudes the same timeless feelings as the songs that brought the Shins into the conversation more than a decade ago.
