Why do we like this?

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet: the new collabo between the Almighty Danger Mouse and James Mercer of the Shins is absolutely unreal. Yes, I did refer to Danger Mouse (or Brian Burton as his mother would say) as Almighty. As you might know from previous posts, I have all but devoted my life to everything Danger Mouse dives into. Whether it be Gnarls Barkley, Beck's Modern Guilt, MF Doom's Mouse and the Mask, Jemini's Ghetto Pop Life, or The Black Key's Attack & Release, everything the man touches turns into pure gold.

As far as Broken Bells goes, I think it's his best work yet. The production is at an all time high and Mercer's melodic voice just takes everything to the next level. And this coming from a hardcore Black Keys fan and someone who loves everything Mouse has done for the evolution of hip hop.

I have now been listening to this album on repeat for several days. I discovered it thanks to a hip hop loving Indie Shuffle viewer who reminded me to tune in. Kathy, you will probably not see this but I just want you to know that I am eternally grateful for what you have done.

Do yourself a favor: listen, enjoy, experience musical nirvana.
