Stream: The Shins

Port of Morrow, The Shins first album in five years, is set to be released 3/20-- and because of all the anxious anticipation from fans, they've graced us with some spoilers throughout the last week. First we had a video for "Simple Song," and now we've got a radio rip of "The Rifle's Spiral"--a song they've actually been performing since 2009, so avid listeners might miss out on an extra song to analyze. That aside, the song sounds a lot different than most of The Shins stuff. They've fused some electronic synths with their always cerebral lyrics and paired it with lush instrumentals. The best spoiler of all, though? They'll be kicking off a North American Tour to promote the album before the album drops in March.
