and on and on and on

The great news just keeps on rolling in as word comes out of an exciting new collaboration between The Shins mastermind James Mercer and Sir Danger Mouse, Brian Burton, who have secretly worked together to form a new band called Broken Bells. Rolling Stone has the scoop including a handful of song titles ("The High Road", "The Ghost Inside", "Sailing to Nowhere/Deviant Sister") and news of a release via Columbia in early 2010. It all sounds just a little dark from those titles. Mercer adds "there’s some really sinister, nasty shit going on in there". Can't wait. There's a band site that's worth lurking around in the coming months over at BrokenBells.com.
