‘Port of Morrow’ is the fourth album from The Shins and it’s been quite a wait since their last outing ‘Wincing The Night Away’ in 2007. Since that time, James Mercer has worked on side-project ‘Broken Bells’ with Danger Mouse, and The Shins have had a fairly substantial change in personnel. It’s safe to say this is not the first time The Shins have changed their line-up – but, to be clear, James Mercer is The Shins. Richard Swift joins on keyboard duties, ex-Modest Mouse Joe Plummer on drums and lesser-known Sub Pop singer/songwriter Jessica Dobson takes lead guitar.
