Arriving five years after Wincing the Night Away, Port of Morrow was the first Shins album to appear on James Mercer's Aural Apothecary imprint (also home to Broken Bells, his collaboration with Danger Mouse) and the first without the rest of the band that appeared on the remainder of their discography. Instead, Mercer assembled a revolving cast of supporting performers that included Modest Mouse's Joe Plummer, Crystal Skulls' Yuuki Matthews, drummer-at-large Janet Weiss, and producer Greg Kurstin, who gives the album a big, radio-friendly sound.
The Shins' new album, Port of Morrow, draws its title from an actual port in the band's adopted home state of Oregon, and a consultation of Google Earth's overhead view reveals an oddly mundane little outpost nestled in the spectacular scenery of the Columbia River. Port of Morrow is the Shins' first album after a five-year hiatus, but it was no ordinary hiatus for the band.
