What do you get when you combine the Shins' James Mercer, and producer Dangermouse (Brian Burton)? Broken Bells, whose self titled debut will be available on March 9th, 2010. To be honest, I put off checking this project out for a week or so, as I thought it would be too much of a stretch. However, it appears as though I was mistaken, as Mercer's vocals pair well with Burton's production and synthesizers. Definitely worth checking out.
