I had the extreme pleasure of attending the Shins' concert in Tahoe. Wonderful performance of their unique style with epic vistas of inspiration as well as rare creative insights.
However, Ra Ra Riot's performance was difficult to tolerate and was best described as "80's gone wrong".
It's hard to leave all these mormons behind...hilarious doublespeak, mercer.
Your music has always had such a depth of verse and such beautiful melodies. I am awestruck at how intricate the instrumentation and the harmony of it all. This new album continues a beautiful tradition.
Please come to Philadelphia and play the Trocadero which is by far the best venue. I NEED to hear this live!!
As a British fan, I emplore you to head over the pond and wet your feet in some crazy English summer rain....would love to see you anywhere but if you played Bestival (fantastic festival) then I would be proper chuffed as I already have tickets....lol...
hearing 'Simple Song' for the first time was a magical experience. I felt like standing up and spreading my hands to the heavens. I didn't do that, but felt like it. Now, every now and then (when alone) I do it.
You are my favorite band since I found my favorite bands when I was a kid. In other words, since I cemented my favorite music and bands, you are the only band I've heard in all that time that is just as important to me.
One more album to go before it can be said that your first five albums are all perfect. So few bands can say that, even the greats can't say that. But you'll be able to.
Please come to the midwest for a show. Anywhere within a few hours of Chicago....just once. Please.
Been a massive fan of yours for ages and a massive influence on my music. Seen you three times and can't wait for you guys to come to the uk again.

Been listening to you guys for a good year and a half now and just discovered Broken Bells six or so months ago. Gotta say, best music experience I've ever had, just sitting back listening to James and the band playing these melodies.
I discovered you guys through New Slang like a lot of people and still listen to that song over and over. So many good songs make it hard to pick a favorite, but at the moment I've been listening to Split Needles and The Celibrate Life a lot. Great stuff!
I don't know if you guys or Broken Bells have a single song that has gotten old for me. Not even Baby Boomerang :3
Keep up the outstanding music --- My wallet is yours. <----
the shins are my favorite band and their new record Port of morrow is my favorite record of theirs
My heartfelt thanks to James Mercer and the Shins for creating such exceptional music - its nature and brilliance makes me happy. I enjoyed the Albuquerque concert so much that I took my wife, daughter and her boyfriend, to catch the Aspen show. They are now delighted fans.
The Best to You!
