Broken Bells is the brain child of Shins frontman, James Mercer, and instumental mastermind, Danger Mouse. I was pleasantly surprised when I first heard that this collaboration was taking place. I happen to be a huge fan of the Shins and respect the smooth sounds of Gnarls Barkley a great deal as well.
This album is almost exactly how I would have expected it to be. Danger Mouse makes some killer backing sounds while James Mercer crushes it with his tasty signature vocals.
There are quite a number of noteworthy tracks on this album including, but not limited to, “The High Rood,” “The Ghost Inside,” and “Trap Doors.”
I have embedded the video for “The Ghost Inside” below. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
