LA-based duo Electric Guest have announced their signing to Downtown Records who will release their debut full length in 2012. You may have never heard of this band, but you probably now their producer. As KCRW said in July:
Danger Mouse (Gorillaz, Gnarls Barkley, Broken Bells, The Black Keys, U2) is at that point in his career where he can do no wrong. At this precious moment, he is the arbiter of what is hip, redefining pop and elevating what might be otherwise esoteric concepts into radio-ready joyrides.Watch the band on stage four times this week in NYC for CMJ. They make their NYC debut (tonight - 10/18) at Dominion (with Penguin Prison, ANR & more), and then continue on to Tammany Hall, Mercury Lounge and finally the BrooklynVegan day party at Public Assembly on Saturday (more details TBA). All dates and some songs below...
Brian [Burton aka Danger Mouse] came to the project thanks to his longstanding friendship with Jorma Taccone, Asa Taccone [of Electric Guest]'s brother, who is famous for his contributions to The Lonely Island (with Andy Samberg) and their renegade musical sketches on Saturday Night Live (ie. "Dick in a Box"!).
I first played Electric Guest on air at KCRW on May 28 and it was one of those radio debuts that reminded me of how lucky I am to have a platform to share music I love. And standing in the crowd this past Monday, watching the band on stage - and watching Brian watch the band onstage - inspired still another moment of joy and deep gratitude.
The Black Keys @ Coachella 2011 (more by David Andrako)
This is what the label says:
The Black Keys' new album El Camino will be released December 5 on Nonesuch Records. Produced by Danger Mouse and The Black Keys, the 11-track album was recorded at singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound studio in the band's new hometown of Nashville during the spring of 2011.The band only have European dates scheduled at the moment (listed below), but are in NYC for a private T-Mobile sponsored show TONIGHT (10/12). It's nearly impossible to get in (invite only, small space), but the show will be streaming online at 11pm on T-Mobile's Facebook.
In advance of the release, the album's first single, 'Lonely Boy', will be released on October 26. The complete track list is below; further details will be announced shortly. Pre-orders of El Camino begin today at www.theblackkeys.com and www.nonesuch.com.
All Euro tour dates, the album's tracklist, and a video ad for the album starring Bob Odenkirk (aka Saul Goodman), below...
"The long-anticipated brainchild of producer-composer Danger Mouse and Italian composer Daniele Luppi, Rome benefits from a bit of context. More than five years in the making, the project assembles many of the surviving performers of classic '60s and '70s Ennio Morricone scores -- and, in half a dozen memorable cases, pairs them up with the vocals of Norah Jones or The White Stripes' Jack White."In related news, "Jack White has contributed to a new project spearheaded by Bob Dylan that pays tribute to Hank Williams."
[stream the whole new album @ NPR]
"I did a project with Bob Dylan: he put together 20 or 25 people to finish writing Hank Williams songs that only had lyrics and didn't have music ... I had to write music for Hank Williams' lyrics," White said. "I looked through all the piles of lyrics, and one of 'em just kept speaking to me. Sometimes you think it's gonna be really hard to find my spot, and then it picks it for you. You don't even have to choose it; it just picks it for you."In related to that news, Steve Earle's new album also pays tribute to Hank Williams. He played Leno last night, but that video is a pain to get to work, but you can watch one of him covering "I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive" recently in Seattle, below...

Are you in the holiday spirit yet? Last night (12/1) was the first of the 101.9 RXP "Yule Rock Holiday Concert Series" featuring Broken Bells (whose member Danger Mouse recently collaborated with Jack White) and Karen Elson (who is married to Jack White), a series that continues tommorrow night (12/3) with My Chemical Romance at the sold-out Hammerstein Ballroom (one of three upcoming NYC MY Chemical Romance shows). The show was also the start of a short stint of Broken Bells tour dates that will last through the middle of the month, hitting nine cities before closing up shop at Gibson Amphitheatre Universal City, California.
Karen Elson next appears in NYC as part of her group the Citizens Band at Highline Ballroom on December 18th...
"Equal parts show-stopping performers, political activists, eclectic tastemakers and headstrong personalities, The Citizens Band has been one of the most lauded and prominent staples of New York City nightlife for the past few years - a potent combination of the city's urban smarts, diverse style and forward-thinking attitude. Performers for "The Past is a Foreign Country" include Chelsea Bacon, Mr. Blue, Ian Buchanan, Michael Cavadias, Adam Crystal, Jorjee Douglass, Karen Elson, Sarah Sophie Flicker, Rachelle Garniez, Mike Jackson, Dave Lebleu, Mark McAdam, Angela McCluskey, Amy Miles, Jon Natchez, Jeff Palmiotti, Rain Phoenix, Kelly Pratt, Matt Ray, Ronin and Leah Siegel with direction by Calla Videt."The show "promotes the new Blue Key campaign, tackling the topic of refugees and displaced people. The Blue Key campaign, organized by USA for UNHCR draws attention to the work of the UN Refugee Agency and the global refugee crisis." Tickets are on sale.
Were you at the Irving Plaza show? Did Broken Bells mention their Grammy nomination from the stage? Maybe RXP morning host Matt Pinfield said something about it?

Broken Bells (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Broken Bells who recently lauched a 3D interactive video for "October", kick off a string of dates tonight (12/1) at Irving Plaza. The NYC show is part of the 101.9 RXP "Yule Rock Holiday Concert Series". The band will hit select cities from coast-to-coast, eventually landing in LA by the middle of the month. Updated tour dates are below.
And Broken Bells member Danger Mouse just wouldn't be himself if he didn't have his hand in another 10000 projects. His latest is "Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi present: ROME":
Brian Burton [Danger Mouse] and Daniele Luppi met in Los Angeles in 2004... Luppi, a composer from Italy, was receiving acclaim for his album An Italian Story, which revisited the cinematic sounds of his childhood. (He has also written music for the screen - Sex and the City, Nine - and later worked with Burton on arrangements for Gnarls Barkley, Dark Night of the Soul and Broken Bells.)In addition, Jack White and Norah Jones each lend their voices to three tracks on the forthcoming LP, due in March 2011 via Capitol Records.
United by their shared passion for classic Italian film music, ...[and] after an intense songwriting period - writing separately at first, and then together as the songs evolved - they travelled to Rome in October 2006. Luppi made some calls and they assembled the original musicians from films such as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West - including the legendary Marc 4 backing band and Alessandro Alessandroni's 'I Cantori Moderni' choir. Most of the musicians were in their seventies and hadn't worked together for several decades.
They booked time in Rome's cavernous Forum Studios - formerly Ortophonic Studios, founded, amongst others, by the great Ennio Morricone... Every effort was made to replicate the recording practices of the 1960s/70s golden age, recording live and straight to tape, with overdubs but no electronics, computers, 21st-century effects or studio trickery.
In other Jack White news, the White Stripes frontman/Third Man Records honcho is taking some fire for deciding to put up some limited edition Third Man material up for auction on ebay:
Paid subscribers of Third Man Records' The Vault were directed to an eBay page with open auctions for copies of the limited edition vinyl version of the self-titled White Stripes reissue. Within an hour, all 5 auctions were above $100 each, and a small shitstorm of comments began to erupt on The Vault, when, suddenly, Jack White joined the site's chatroom with a handbasket-gripping introduction of "See you in hell?" and explained, quite simply, why the hell there were people paying 500 bucks for a record you have to crack open to listen to: "Supply & demand.... nobody told them to buy it with a gun to their head."Reggie Watts auction coming soon? And the attack on the eBay record microeconomy is on. All Broken Bells dates and a video is below.
...When a fan tried to argue that people with "more money than sense" were to blame, Jack retorted: "Or are they just paying what the going rate is?" White explained: "We sell a Wanda Jackson split record for 10 bucks, the eBay flipper turns around and sells it for 300. If 300 is what it's worth, then why doesn't Third Man Records sell it for 300? If we sell them for more, the artist gets more, the flipper gets nothing. We're not in the business of making flippers a living. We're in the business of giving fans what they want." - [Antiquiet]

"Complete with a stage full of awesome musicians, a cool video projection in the background and James Mercer singing only to me (ok, that part may have just been in my imagination) [Broken Bells put on] a pretty far out show. I thought maybe the live performance of their songs might have gotten a little cooler, the guys didn't really stray too much from the album version, which was a little disappointing, but they did play a cool cover of a Black Keys song." -[Via Le Shrn]Broken Bells and Elf Power teamed up for a show at Terminal 5 in NYC on Monday night (10/11). Through the magic of television, Broken Bells also appeared on two LA-based talk shows on Monday and Tuesday, taped when the band was in LA to also play the Wiltern in LA last week (and at the Wiltern). Between LA and NYC, they stopped by for a set at Austin City Limits which also had them covering Sparklehorse and Black Keys songs (both artists that Broken Bells member Danger Mouse has worked with as a producer). Full T5 setlist below.
Video from Broken Bells' appearances on Carson Daly and The Ellen Degeneres Show (Ellen??), and more pictures and the setlist from Terminal 5, below...
Dark Night of The Soul, the Danger Mouse & Sparklehorse album with visuals by David Lynch, is currently on display at Morrison Hotel Gallery in NYC in the form of "An exhibit consisting of 50 photographs by David Lynch. Music by Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse."...
"Hand-signed by Lynch, each photograph is $3500 and can be purchased together with its set or separately. A companion book carrying the same name features Lynch's photographs and comes with a blank CD-R. A 48-page limited edition run of 5,000 copies was released in 2009. Lynch's art, along with a 9-minute behind-the-scenes video of the two-day making-of the pictures accompanies the downloadable album via iTunes." [WSJ]You have until August 3rd to check it out.
Two major label, Danger Mouse-related, indie rock star collaborative side-like projects are touring this fall, but not together. They both play NYC shows within days of each other.
As previously mentioned, Broken Bells are playing Terminal 5 on October 11th. Tickets are on sale. That date is one of four that James Mercer and Brian Burton will play that month. All dates are listed below..
As previously also mentioned, Gorillaz are playing Madison Square Garden on Ocotober 8th. That show goes on sale August 6th and is part of a larger tour that is now fully announced. All dates below...
Broken Bells @ the Mohawk (SXSW 2010) (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
In case you were worried that The Morning Benders didn't have enough NYC shows coming up, now there's one more, but it's because the NYC via California band just accepted the opening slot on Broken Bells' first tour which includes a June 5th show at Irving Plaza. Stay tuned for ticket information. All dates below.
For Broken Bells it will be their 2nd NYC show. They played Music Hall of Williamsburg before SXSW. The Morning Benders play Music Hall of Williamsburg in April (and two sold out shows at Mercury Lounge the same month). The Morning Benders also open for the Black Keys at Central Park Summerstage date in July (both of their shows there). All three bands so far mentioned in this post were at SXSW, though the Black Keys only played one show which was also one of the few that Broken Bells played. The Morning Benders' first SXSW show this year was a BrooklynVegan party. Right before Austin they played an intimate record release show at Cameo.
Broken Bells is the new project/band/album from The Shins' James Mercer and Danger Mouse. Danger Mouse has also been busy producing new Black Keys songs (one track on the new album and the entire album that was released in 2008) (he also produced Broken Bells)...
"Broken Bells features Mercer on vocals, guitars and bass while Burton plays organ, drums, piano, synths and bass. The pair play all instruments on the album with the exception of a full string section arranged by Daniele Luppi. Broken Bells was recorded by Todd Monfalcone and Kennie Takahashi at Mondo Studio in Los Angeles and produced by Danger Mouse."One of Danger Mouse's other recent projects was Dark Night of the Soul which was a collaboration with Mark Linkous who very recently took his own life.

There's been a lot of buzz around the festival about Broken Bells, the new project of the Shins' frontman James Mercer and artist-producer Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton).After leaving NYC, Broken Bells ended up playing at least four times during SXSW. The first of those shows was this semi-surprise AOL pop up show in a parking garage on Red River (right down the street from the BV party at Emo's happening at the same time) on Wednesday, March 17th. The second Broken Bells show was that night Stubb's (right down the street from the BV show at Club DeVille). More pictures from the AOl show below...
Now, reaction to the debut disc has been mixed (we thought it fell short of the hype), but seeing them live is making us think we need to take another listen. It's woozy psych-influenced pop, with a bit of hip-hop swing to the beats, and while their songs didn't initially hit us that hard, they're starting to grow on us.
We caught their final performance of SXSW Saturday afternoon, on the patio at Mohawks, which had been at capacity since at least 1pm, with a line up down the street bigger than the crowd inside, which should give you some idea of the attention they're getting. [Now Toronto]

Broken Bells, the new collaboration between producer extraordinaire Danger Mouse and Shins leader James Mercer, did everything that was expected of them Wednesday (3/10) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. A roundly good thing, unless like most live music fans, you come to a performance expecting the unexpected.
For Mercer and Brian Burton (Danger Mouse's real name), it was only their fourth show (they already played LA, Paris and London) together after a whirlwind musical courtship and friendship saw them create a stunning record of golden nugget mining 60s pop and psych rock. Brimming with melodious texture and refined emotion, the self-titled album released the day before the show is nearly spotless and blatantly thought through. For the majority of their set at Music Hall, the same rang true. But in a live implication, that translated into sterile, almost medically scrubbed renditions of all the songs from their first recorded effort. It was no small feat to reproduce such a nuanced and instrumentally rich work note for note, and the musicianship all night was stellar. But rock concerts aren't held in ICUs; germs and other unaccounted irregularities are encouraged.
The venue was dark, with dotted, drug-induced projections making up the entire lighting scheme. The album certainly has gloomy leanings, especially in Mercer's sometimes tortured vocals, but there are also mounds of joy clumped in there. With the exception of the lead guitarist and bassist, it was almost as if the band was hiding their lack of sentiment, obscuring their unease with playing the music on purpose. It wasn't necessary; hopefully Mercer and Burton realize as more shows unfold that they are readily capable of playing with precision and thoroughness, and that their skill will only shine clearer with a little dirt thrown over their pristine looking glass.
There was some pleasant filth present though. Openers Plants and Animals plenty soiled up the venue with their exciting identity crisis of stoner sludge-rock meets tainted indie crooning.
And after completing their album, Mercer and Burton came out together for an encore and performed a brightly paired down cover of Neil Young's "Don't Let It Bring You Down," followed by full band cover of Tommy James and The Shondells' huge hit "Crimson And Clover." They were faithful to both songs while taking thrilling liberties, with Mercer and Burton even showing uncharacteristic smiles throughout.
Coming up, both Broken Bells and Plants and Animals are heading to SXSW. Plants and Animals play six shows including a BV day party. Broken Bells play one big official NPR one at Stubb's with Spoon (3/17), as well as at least two more that have since been announced. On Wednesday 3/17 they're also playing an AOL pop-up day show with the location TBA that day, and they were added to the T-Mobile/Mog party happening March 20th at the Mohawk with the Black Keys also on the bill.

Mark Linkous' dramatic, lush music often came from a place of pain. In 1996, Linkous actually died for two minutes after ingesting a dangerous mix of Valium and antidepressants while on tour in the U.K. behind Sparklehorse's 1995 debut Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot. He recovered, but the incident left him crippled -- he laid unconscious for 14 hours, cutting off circulation to his legs. He suffered a heart attack when medics attempted to straighten his legs, and underwent seven surgeries to save his damaged limbs. But after the incident, he recorded 1999's Good Morning Spider, 2001's It's A Wonderful Life and 2006's Dreamt for Light Years in the Belly of a Mountain. "For a while there, I was really scared that when I technically died -- which I guess I did for a few minutes -- that the part of my brain that allowed me my ability to write songs would be damaged," he told Rolling Stone in 1999.Mark Linkous, who spent 6 months in a wheelchair after his near death experience, committed suicide on on Saturday, March 6th 2010. Fellow tortured and talented singer-songwriter Vic Chesnutt spent 26 years in a wheelchair before he took his own life and passed away on December 25, 2009.
Linkous most recently teamed up with Danger Mouse and director David Lynch on Dark Night of the Soul, a multimedia project that was tied up in legal issues with EMI; just this past week, Danger Mouse and the label resolved their dispute and agreed to let the album come out as it was originally intended. [Rolling Stone]
Sparklehorse co-wrote, co-composed and co-produced Dark Night of The Soul with Danger Mouse (whose most recent collaboration is called Broken Bells). Each Dark Night track features a special guest. Track 8 is Vic Chesnutt. That song & the full Dark Night tracklist, below...
"Broken Bells, the hotly anticipated new project between Danger Mouse and the Shins' James Mercer, had a coming-out-party Friday night, performing at the intimate Bootleg Theater for industry pals and those lucky enough to score some of the tickets that went on sale Friday morning. With a capacity of about 200, tickets didn't last long, and Pop & Hiss was forced to head home to watch some Olympic ice dancing instead.*Multiple live videos from that first, and suprise, live Broken Bells show below.
Nevertheless, plenty of amateur videographers were in attendance..."" [LA Times]
And it was just announced that Broken Bells will perform at the NPR SXSW showcase at Stubb's on Wednesday March 17th. That's the same show that Spoon, The Walkmen, and Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings are also playing. Luckily I've seen the last three bands live many times and Broken Bells are playing Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on March 10th (tickets on sale this week), because that night in Austin I'll be down the street at the BrooklynVegan showcase at Club DeVille.

Fruit Bats @ MHOW in September (more by Raymond Haddad)
Fruit Bats, led by the Shins' Eric Johnson, put out their fourth record, The Ruminant Band, and toured North America this year; they're currently playing shows in Europe. In January they have a scheduled tour of the West Coast, and after that they currently have a sole NYC show (part of a TBA tour that covers the Southeast, Midwest and Northeast) scheduled for Monday, March 22nd at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets go on sale Friday, December 18 at noon.
While Johnson has been focusing on his Fruit Bats project, lead Shins songwriter James Mercer has been collaborating with Danger Mouse on a project they call Broken Bells.
Broken Bells features Mercer on vocals, guitars and bass while Burton plays organ, drums, piano, synths and bass. The pair play all the instruments on the album with the exception of a full string section arranged by Daniele Luppi. Broken Bells was recorded by Todd Monfalcone and Kennie Takahashi at Mondo Studio in Los Angeles and produced by Burton.Their 10-track self-titled album will be our March 8th on Columbia - and they've promised the first single from it "The High Road" next week. The band recently launched a "viral" ad campaign with links to various anagram sites each hosting different instrumental clips from the album.
Fruit Bats videos and all tour dates are below...
Tickets are now on presale (password = BOWL) for a Beck/Spoon/MGMT show in LA on May 10th. More info on Beck's new album (which Paper Tiger/P4K say includes a collaboration with Cat Power) and Beck & Spoon tour dates below.....

My two favorite Cee-Lo quotes from the evening (April 10, 2008) were (roughly) "This is my favorite part of the show because I get to sing the song that made me rich and famous." (said before the 4th to last song of the night) and "This is kind of like an overpaid dress rehearsal" (said in reference to the whole show).
It was Gnarls Barkley's first show since putting out their new album ('The Odd Couple'). Therefore it was the first time they played a lot of the new songs live, but for a "dress rehearsal" it was pretty impressive. They were tight. I did get the sense that the full band wasn't 100% comfortable playing all the songs with each other (or with the outfits they were wearing), but for some reason that made it even more enjoyable. The show - especially Cee-Lo - seemed real (unlike the Rihanna show the night before in the same venue....yes I went....with a group of people that included a 12 year old.....it was mostly kids there actually....it was an early show.....before Dirty Projectors....shhhh). Back to Gnarls....Cee-Lo (as James Brown) was completely on point. He has an amazing voice - even live. Danger Mouse always seemed to be doing a good job at whatever he was doing too, and he always looked super cool doing it.
Cee-Lo stripped down for the 2-song encore
