"Producer Brian “Danger Mouse” Burton and singer/guitarist/songwriter James Mercer of the Shins have had their share of collaborations. Danger Mouse, best known as half of both Gnarls Barkley and Danger Doom, has produced and/or worked with everyone from Gorillaz and Beck to the Black Keys and Sparklehorse. Mercer, in turn, has worked on the Postal Service project and with his former Modest Mouse tourmates. So how does the pair’s collaboration as Broken Bells fare? Better than even the most optimistic fanatic of either might have dreamed. Mercer’s distinct singing voice and pastoral pop sensibility remain the constant, and it’s as if a director/writer teamed up with a new cinematographer. Try the lullingly soulful The High Road to hear for yourself." -- iTunes Store
