Time Off magazine spoke with The Shins frontman James Mercer about the band’s follow-up to ‘Chutes Too Narrow’. “Some of the songs might be a little bit different, but there are a number that would fit right in on either of the records,” Mercer explained. “I’m dedicated to improving the recording, and hopefully the songwriting. So far it’s sounding a lot better. I’m taking my time, I’m experimenting with microphones… for the first time I’m using three or four mics on one amp. It’s all stuff I didn’t have the luxury to do before.”
