Broken Bells Inflaming Our Urge to Make Crappy Garden State Jokes



On March 8, one of the more promising/cute/uncomfortable "indie" collaborations in recent memory will kersplaaat on a record store near you: the debut, self-titled album from Broken Bells, Danger Mouse and the Shins' James Mercer's side project, will hit shelves that day. Other than string arrangements provided by composed Daniele Luppi, Mercer and Danger Mouse play all of the instruments on the record; Danger Mouse even helmed the boards while recording, serving as producer for the album. The duo's first single, "The High Road," will premiere on the band's website on Monday, December 21. Mercer's a stone cold killer when it comes to forging hooks and Danger Mouse knows his way around that block just as well. This might be awesome.
