The collaboration of The Shins’ James Mercer and Brian Burton AKA Danger Mouse is like an indie stoner circle “Dude! What if…” idea. It’s like Oreos and peanut butter, an idea sparked by the polarity of two incredible things and the curiosity as to what would happen if you put them in combination with one another. Much like Oreos and peanut butter, this association that makes up the band Broken Bells has some strangely delicious results.  The origins of the group can be traced back [READ ON]

Broken Bells played a very special set on the Late Show with David Letterman this past Monday night. Danger Mouse’s Brian Burton and The Shins’ James Mercer played “And I Love Her” by The Beatles, and were accompanied by none other than an old television set. Actually, Broken Bells played The Beatles tune over a looped sample of Ringo Starr laying down a groove for “I Am the Walrus” while the television played nostalgic footage of Ringo at his drums. Clever!

THE SHINS

5 years ago by Eric Weiner

It was only a matter of time before I mentioned The Shins. This multi-genre band from the land of enchantment (otherwise known as New Mexico) is, without a doubt, my favorite band. It was The Shins who first exposed me to the wonderful world of indie music with their folk pop and quirky jingles. This is a band that would have fit perfectly in the 1960s, and thrived. [READ ON]
