For whom the Bells toll

That period between Christmas and New Year is, essentially, meaningless. Hours pass by in a haze of food, drink and old Disney films and no-one can remember what day it is. During this period Musick heard a couple of songs by Broken Bells, aka producer Danger Mouse and that guy from The Shins. As with all Danger Mouse endeavours - be it producing for the likes of Gorillaz, The Rapture and Beck, or co-fronting Gnarls Barkley - the results have a vintage feel, as if some lost record from the early '70s had been found and remixed.

'The High Road' is the first single to be officially released from their debut album, which is out in March:

We've always been fans of knotty organ intros and this one is the best!
