    Indie rock band from Albuquerque. It's been about four years since Port of Morrow, and instagram shows that they've been in the studio a bit recently.

    Chutes Too Narrow is one of my favorites. I was obsessed with "Young Pilgrim" was one of my favorite songs for a while

    Wincing the Night Away is one of my all time favorites, I absolutely love all of them though. Broken Bells is alright but they've never hit me like anything the shins has done

    Writing your greatest song ("Simple Song") that far into your career is pretty awesome.

    I get flack from my friends because I think the last two records are their best, so this makes me happy. fights for my favorite as well--that song and record are just so bombastic and colorful, it's a blast

    the amount of songs on that record that are among their best is absolutely staggering

    Yeah I agree, I was kind of shocked to hear a song by them that reminds me of OIW at stage.

    Wonder what they'll do next

    Wow. He's always sounded a little like Lennon but this is a whole new level. Incredible clip.

    their Facebook makes new music seem closer

    also kind of think the album is called Prescient Dreams but that doesn't really matter yet

    also there's a new red/black pressing of Wincing if anybody is looking for that

    Listened to Port in full for the first time today. Wow, wow, wow: what a record. May be my favorite of theirs.

    Also, this, I suppose:

    Seriously, the last four tracks on here are all truly incredible. Man. What an accomplishment this record is, I had no fucking idea.

    For a second I thought you had the new record and I got really excited haha. Yeah Port of Morrow is so great and so underrated. I seriously love every track on it and I love when he really tries new things ("September", "Fall of '82"). Glad you liked it!

    Have listened to nothing but this band for the past five days. I truly think they're becoming one of my favorites, I really love them.

    Yep, after a month or so of being obsessed with these guys, I refuse to hear an argument for any other album besides PoM being their best. Coherent, self-assured and beautiful from the first second until the last. Could not be more face-slappingly clear to me. Can't wait for LP5 even if "Dead Alive" is a relative dud.
