Professional 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."
