James Mercer - Feb. 20, 2003 @ Herrgarn, Linkoping, Sweden

There seems to be a lot of buzz about The Shins at the moment, so I thought this particular little live set might be of interest to folks. This is James Mercer of The Shins doing a solo performance prior to the release of Chutes Too Narrow. It's a great quality set, and has the added bonus of guest appearances by Sam Beam (Iron & Wine) and Rosie Thomas (who is not Sufjan's baby mama). This may have already made the rounds on the blogosphere a few times, but hopefully there are some folks out there who haven't heard it yet. Have at it:

Woah, I tried out for that play in high school and I didn't remember that! "We got Trouble, right here in River City!"

Hey, great blog! I love track #3 and #7.. cool beats.

You should definitely take a listen or check out MEW. They're a band from Denmark & currently on tour! They will even be in ATL on the 30th - and playing at THE EARL!
