The Shins, 'Heartworms' (Aural Apothecary/Columbia Records)James Mercer takes the helm on 'Heartworms,' producing The Shins' fifth album and shaping the band's style and identity as much as ever. Mercer creates a diverse set of tunes which remain playful even when he explores relationships where nothing appears to be simple or straightforward.A folky guitar and snappy percussion drive 'Mildenhall,' a true-to-life glimpse into Mercer's military brat adolescence and 'Painting a Hole' is the first of several tunes that seem musically inspired by those years Mercer spent in Britain in the 1980s.'Cherry Hearts' has an angular, New Wave approach similar to Howard Jones, while 'Rubber Ballz' namechecks Paul Simon and may have settled on a harsh solution to every boy's fantasy-gone-wrong, 'And I just can't get her out of my bed/Wish I'd gone with her sister instead.' The title tune has more of the typically Mercer-ish confessions, wordy and rather resigned, with sounds which hark back to the band's early albums, what has been described as a 'return to the handmade.'
