The Shins On World Cafe (World Cafe, 3/16/12)

The Shins will release their fourth record, Port Of Morrow, March 20th. This 10-track collection represents a new beginning of sorts -- Mercer has recruited a new backing band with ties to Modest Mouse, Beck and Crystal Skulls. The result is joyful and introspective, influenced in part by Mercer's new familial situation. As he put it, "Having children is something that makes you think about the importance of love and relationships between humans."
