The Shins - 'September'

It's oozing Macca melodies

The Shins - 'September'

Album Info

  • Label: Aural Apothecary/Columbia
Thanks to his dalliance with the mainstream, whenever a new James Mercer album rolls around nowadays we’re all supposed to kneel at his feet as if he’s the motherfucking messiah. He’s not – but as this proves, he’s still an ace songwriter, oozing Macca melodies and Beach Boys-y summer sheen. Which isn’t exactly a bad thing, is it?
