Shins’ Mercer & Dangermouse Reveal Album Details

Broken Bells is the name of James Mercer and Dangermouse’s project. March 9th marks the date of their self-titled album’s release. And apparently the single will premier next week on their website. I’ve been waiting patiently for a new Shins album and am mildly miffed that this is what we’re to look forward to from Mercer. In my opinion, Dangermouse’s production is best suited when paired with Cee-Lo. Modern Guilt, the record he produced for Beck, is tragically mediocre (not sure whose fault that is). Anyway, here’s hoping Broken Bells is worthwhile. At least their publicity photo (see left) is nice.
