Song Of The Day: 3/21/12 (Simple Song)

The Shins dropped their long awaited 4th studio album “Port of Morrow” yesterday and it’s GREAT!!! I never got into The Shins until James Mercer joined up with Danger Mouse to form the band, Broken Bells a few years ago, but based off of the awesomeness of Broken Bells, I took a listen to some of their past material and the new Shins album. Today’s song of the day is the song, “Simple Song” from the album. The video is very cool. It’s about a family who hates their dad and knowing this, when he dies he leaves them nothing but a video that leads them on a terrible treasure hunt for the deed to his house. Hilarity and chaos ensue after that. Check out the sweet song and video to match.
