James Mercer, the creative force behind The Shins, and Dangermouse are joining forces to create Broken Bells. I’m not sure why, but that combo instantly made me really excited and expectant. My hopes were more or less confirmed with the leak of lead track The High Road. It essentially sounds like The Shins with a more modern producer behind them. And that’s no bad thing at all. This tune is exactly the type for a chilled sunday. Enjoy it.
Go here to preorder a crazy-ass Limited Edition Music Box with posters, postcards, stickers and blow up sex dolls. Maybe.
