Broken Bells (Danger Mouse x James Mercer) – October x The High Road

blame it on Shake January 7, 2010

On March 9th, Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) and James Mercer (lead singer of The Shins) are releasing their collaborative effort, Broken Bells. If I had to, I’d guess they were inspired to knock out a full album after working together on Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse’s Dark Night of the Soul. And in the event that I’m wrong (which very well might be the case), the music is still dope as hell haha. The debut single, The High Road, was released for free on December 21st via their official website. And now bmuse shot over another track which I’d like to share with y’all. Enjoy.

    I think the song you posted as “October” is actually “The Mall And Misery”

  • No, it’s October in itunes..

  • “The Mall And Misery” is #12

  • Cliché Gahvara

    Listening to the advance. Whatever is up there now is ‘October’

    shins go hard.

  • Heard the album, and it sounds pretty good. The only low point in my opinion is Vaporize, but I really like The High Road, October, Citizen, and The Ghost Inside.
