Broken Bells – “It’s That Talk Again”
James Mercer of the Shins and prolific producer Danger Mouse (aka Brian Joseph Burton) first collaborated as Broken Bells in 2010 and, five years later, they’re still doing it. They followed up their self-titled debut with After The Disco in 2014, and today’s song “It’s That Talk Again” is the first thing we’ve heard since then. It comes via Pitchfork in advance of their concert film Broken Bells: Live At The Orpheum, which is out this coming Saturday. “It’s That Talk Again” doubles down on Mercer’s ethereal vocals and Burton’s skeletal funk production.
