Song of the Day 03/20/12: The Shins - "40 Mark Stresse"
It's official. The Shins are back and they don't suck. Even after seeing these guys perform last year at DeLuna in Florida with their new band members, I still had major doubts about the band's comeback. It was just too long of a wait -- I've changed a lot in the past 5 years and perhaps even grown up a bit. However, with Port of Morrow, it's clear that the band has done a bit of growing up too. "40 Mark Stresse" is one of my favorite songs off the album. That falsetto chorus gets me every time -- I just love the melody and the chords and the ambient background vocals filling the mix.
