Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - p.68
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[Mercer] nails a balance of economy and sweep, matching the studio lushness he craves with the secondhand melodicism that make 'New Slang' resonate..."
Entertainment Weekly - p.73
"MORROW offers a rejuvenated collection of aerated jangle pop and dreamy ditties." -- Grade: B+
Alternative Press - p.98
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "PORT OF MORROW reveals richly textured, perfectly pleasant charms."
Magnet - p.51
"There's a brighter sheen to the new Shins, although the clarity and precisely articulated details that have been the band's hallmark are still here. PORT merits careful listening: Layers and filigrees of sound keep turning up..."
Uncut (magazine) - p.86
"Tracks like 'It's Only Life', 'September' and 'For A Fool' are slow-strummed, bittersweet explorations of domesticity, family and memory."
