[Music Stuff] Broken Bells = Love
Those who know me well know that I’m a massive fan of the music by James Mercer from The Shins. I love his deep and cryptic lyrics, his alternative melodies and feel good bopping rhythms. I was glad to hear that James Mercer recently teamed up with musician and producer Danger Mouse and what came out was a project called Broken Bells.
Much like when Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard teamed up with Jimmy Tamborello to produce the Postal Service, Broken Bells is a mix of well formed lyrics and electronic melody that makes for delicious, well formed pop. Have a listen to Broken Bells first single The High Road here.
