Hey, so first of all thank you for playing for us here at KCRW at Apogee's Berkeley Street Studios. James Mercer: Cool, yeah. It's fun so far. Thank you. Jason: Wow. It's James Mercer everyone. Say hi James. So, I love that you're mixing it up. A couple of songs from Wincing the Night Away. Sometimes bands come through and they just play their new album from start to finish. James: I guess, I don't know, we care about the audience. We know you're just getting your heads around the new stuff. I go to see shows, too. Sometimes it's like "Come on, really?" Only "In Rainbows?" Jason: Nicely played, nicely played. Well speaking of getting your heads around songs, how has the reaction been and are any songs emerging as fan favorites from the new album? James: Man, "Simple Song" has done pretty well it seems like as far as a live song. That's certainly the one people recognize most, but we are starting to see "Port of Morrow," which is the title tack and kind of one of the stranger songs on the record, seems to be recognizable to a lot of people now. And "It's Only Life." Jason: Of course, yeah. That one is a jam. James: Cool. (To the crowd) Are we doing it? Yeah, we're doing it later. Jason: Do you kind of map out a different set for each show before you go on stage? James: We do, yeah. Richard helps a lot with that. We try and make it interesting for us and change it up a little bit, but also there is sort of a thing to doing the right set list and giving breaks with softer songs, but not too long and all that. Yeah, we think about it. Jason: I have to ask, how was Coachella weekmoreless
