 Check Out: The Shins   The Rifles Spiral

The Shins’ fourth LP, Port of Morrow, arrives March 20th via Columbia Records and frontman James Mercer’s own Aural Apothecary imprint. We’ve already heard the album’s lead single, “Simple Song”, its b-side “September”, and a Mercer-only live version of “It’s Only Life” (which has since been erased from the Internet.) Now, Listen Before You Buy is streaming another album cut, the opener “The Rifle’s Spiral”.

Here’s that same track in live concert form:

Port Of Morrow Tracklist:
01. The Rifle’s Spiral

03. It’s Only Life
04. No Way Down

I am counting down the days till “Port of Morrow” comes out on 3/20! “September” and “Simple Song” are both brilliant new tracks from The Shins and I’m sure the album is going to be impressive. The video for “Simple Song” is available for FREE download on iTunes, btw. It’s a brilliant video!
