“You gotta hear this one song, it’ll change your life I swear.”- Sam (Natalie Portman), Garden State, 2004
And so the mainstream was introduced to the Shins.
Hailing from New Mexico but now calling Portland home, the Shins had been indie darlings for years.
Port of Morrow, their fourth disc, is due on March 20th, and from it we have the first single, Simple Song. Honestly it’s one of the damn catchiest songs I’ve heard in a while. It may not change your life, but it sure will change your tenor for the day.
