Pop go the Shins, making catchy tunes that can change your life

The Shins' James Mercer has a knack for composing brilliant pop songs. Meticulously crafted, they recall the exuberant arty pop of The Kinks and the experimental grandeur of the late '60s Beach Boys. On the brand-new album, "Port of Morrow," you can even hear echoes of the melodic finesse of the Beatles on tracks like "Fall of '82" and "It's Only Life."
