New Music You Should Know- Broken Bells

I don’t do this blog for musical hipsters, as there are plenty of blogs they can explore. Having said that, I do like to introduce music my average Facebook friend might not of heard of.  The Broken Bells are a hipster supergroup of sorts, as Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley) and James Mercer (Shins) came together to make this record.  It’s not as good as Gnarls Barkley, but I think it’s better than any Shins album, which is high praise.  Hard to describe their sound, so take a listen and give me your description.  Here are videos for The High Road, The Ghost Inside, and Trap Doors which features a cool concept where the 2 members of Broken Bells use kids as a test group for it.
