Supergroup slash superDUO featuring The Shins' James Mercer and Brian 'Danger Mouse' Burton that goes by the name of Broken Bells release their first, self-titled, LP on March 8. To celebrate the impending release, as well as giving you a taste of what you could buy, they're streaming the whole thing on their MySpace, as well as on National Public Radio.
So head over to those places to indulge. Tracklisting is as below, as is the artwork, which looks like a pink version of the lampshade I have in my kitchen.
- The High Road
- Your Head Is On Fire
- The Ghost Inside
- Sailing to Nowhere
- Trap Doors
- Mongrel Heart
- The Mall and Misery
Naturally, there's a bunch of pre-order information which can be found here. Limited edition stuff, y'know. Looks quite nice. Video for lead single 'The High Road' below, too.
