New Music Alert: Broken Bells

23 Feb, 2010 Music You Should Know
Share

Broken Bells, the much hyped up project between Danger Mouse and the Shins’ James Mercer, had a coming-out-party Friday night, performing at LA’s Bootleg Theater. The unlikely couple sound pretty good, with Mercer lending his distinguished falsetto over some slow, trippy background harmonies. Broken Bells manages to sound familiar yet contemporary, like the uncovering of a vintage album given some modern electronic flourishes. For Mercer, this project will hopefully provide some range to his more recognized Garden State indie sound; and for Danger Mouse, aka Brian Burton, add this project to his numerous works ranging from Sparklehorse to Beck to the Beatles.

Video from Friday night is below, but check out the higher quality video for the single The High Road afterwards.
