ALBUM STREAM: Broken Bells – ‘After the Disco’

Broken Bells announced their sophomore debut, After the Disco, back in October of last year.

If you haven’t noticed, we’re extremely excited for Broken Bells’ new album in January.

Broken Bells To Release New Album in January 2014

One of my absolute favorite releases of 2010 was the debut, self-titled album from Broken Bells, the collaborative project from The Shins’ frontman, James Mercer, and famed artist-producer, Brian Burton aka Danger Mouse (Danger Doom, Gnarls Barkley, 100 other projects). It’s one of those releases that just never gets old. One that I can enjoy […]
