I’m massively excited about this new outfit! Broken Bells is a collaboration between super producer and dude Danger Mouse (known in this case by his real name, Brian Burton) and James Mercer, lead singer of The Shins. This is effectively The Shins, but more electronic, the same amount of soul, a bit more bounce and a few more beats! Tis Beautiful y’all!
Please check out their website and play around with the pink spikey pulsating planet. I was fiddling with it just this lunchtime!
The album also called “Broken Bells” is due out on 9th March 2010. You can pre order the Deluxe Edition now with the same songs and piles of crap you don’t need from Amazon now for £40. I know I’m gonna buy it, its only a matter of time.
