Music recommendation: The Shins – Simple Song

The last recommendation I made was for a duo that go by the name of Broken Bells. The singer is James Mercer, the lead vocalist and guitarist for the band The Shins and I heard this Simple Song from their 2012 album Port Of Morrow on the radio.

I first heard of The Shins when their music was featured in the excellent film Garden State, written by and starring Zach Braff and I subsequently bought the soundtrack.  Having now heard Simple Song, I intend buying some more of their music.

It’s one of the catchy songs that just gets into your head. I like the beat, I like the straightforward guitars and I like the “simple” production. Enjoy!
