watch: broken bells – a take away show

very thankful for both things going on here: new broken bells material and a take away show. james mercer’s earnest nature works well with these very intimate and personal clips, as he debuts a new song (“the changing lights”) from broken bells upcoming album, after the disco. and for an added bonus, hit the jump for a stripped down rendition of “october.”

short films really take it out of me these days. everyone’s doing them, and i get weary when the music video’s much longer than the song — but hey, i love me some kate mara so sign me up!

watch: broken bells – after the disco [part 1 of short film]

the first of a multi-instalment video series short film by broken bells’ danger mouse and the creators project, watch after the disco, starring anton yelchin and kara mara as what i’m assuming is a pair of star-crossed lovers (she’s in a spacesuit, c’mon!) and featuring the music of broken bells above.

broken bells – windows (2011)

last week saw the announcement of a new 4-song ep from mercer/mouse combo broken bells, the meyrin fields ep, and today marks the release of its first single, the “so reverby it’d make dick dale blush” western mosey “windows.” you’ll get it when you hear it, trust me. stream it over on npr.

stream: cee-lo green – the ol’ sauseej [broken bells parody] (2011)

seeing as how cee-lo and danger mouse have a gnarls-ly connection (sorry), cee-lo took some liberties with broken bells cut “the ghost inside” for some comic relief…except it’s legitimately a total BAMF of a song. stream for now. plz internet, send me an mp3.

video: broken bells – october (2010)

super duo broken bells get all metaphysical on us with their awesome concept of an interactive video. first off, it’s in that new-fangled 3-d technology that i’ve heard so much about. second, you guide a glowing line with your mouse to discover different areas as you “journey” through the space vortex. sound cool? try it below.

broken bells is out now.

video: broken bells – the ghost inside (2010)

in broken bells’ new video for “the ghost inside”, “mad men’s” christina hendricks and her glorious rack play a lonely cyborg jettisoning various limbs and dreaming, not of electric sheep, but of a poolside vacation from her tumultuous space voyage. broken bells themselves make a cameo. did i mention boobs?

video: broken bells – myspace transmissions (2010)

[vodpod id=Groupvideo.5360268&w=425&h=350&fv=m%3D104109686%26type%3Dvideo%26a%3D0]

i haven’t heard from myspace in a minute, and the transmissions is literally the last good memory i have of that hell hole. most recently accommodating the powerhouse duo of dangerhouse and james mercer in a session, broken bells blazed through four songs off of their eponymous debut, including my personal favorite “vaporize,” along with “the high road,” “the ghost inside” and “october.”

the rest of the videos and a download of the sessions can be found below.

video: broken bells – the high road (2010)

all these v2.0 videos by all these bands are really confusing me. usually one’s cut-rate production yet overwhelmingly charming. the other, usually HD camera fodder for the rare times mtv shows subterranean (that show still exist?). either way here’s broken bell’s 2nd video for their song “the high road” from their self titled album, out today, or months depending on what circles you run in.

stream: broken bells – broken bells (2010)

even though this album has been “out” for the greater part of 2010, it still has yet to see a proper retail release. and if for some ridiculous reason you haven’t had the chance or time to burn through the brainchild of james mercer and dangermouse, then look no further than npr’s “exclusive” stream of the ‘debut’ broken bells LP. this will surely live on through 2010’s most awesome drops and be spotted on many year-end lists, with good reason. broken bells is out on march 9th.

ok, let’s clear the air. this isn’t a music video, and i surely didn’t post this to see james mercer or dangermouse. i did, however, post this for the four unbelievably cute british kids handing out “pass” or “fail” cards to the aforementioned musicians.
