Broken Bells - The High Road

videosBack in the day, I'd have nominated a tune like this SLS consideration. SLS is dead, so I'm going to share this because I'm digging it.

It's "The High Road" by Broken Bells. Broken Bells is Danger Mouse and James Mercer from The Shins.

This is the first single from their self-titled debut album, now available.

I'm SO happy you mentioned Broken Bells.

Their new album is FANTASTIC, every little bit of it.

This is a good song and "share". I was somewhat surprised when I first heard the song that there was no album at the time. That must have been early February, as the album came out about a month later in March.

Some other bands that you might also like/want to check out: Fanfarlo, Hockey (with a name like this, they should be Canadian, but they're from Portland, Oregon), Neon Trees, Saint Vincent, The Big Pink

Since it is less likely than in the past that you are hearing your new music on local terrestrial radio, where are you getting your new (new/alternative) music fix from these days? Just curious.

The web.

Blogs like are a very good start. That's where I first heard new Band of Horses and MGMT which I'll be sharing here soon.

They're even giving away an MP3 of new Tokyo Police Club.
