NSR: Broken Bells "The High Road"



I know I posted this song a while back but now that there is a video to go with it I feel that it deserves the rewind. I have a good feeling about this record; I've been playing it out during the early portion of my DJ sets and it always gets at least one trainspotter. A Postal Service for the 20teens, this might be Dangermouse's biggest release since he got "crazy" on that first Gnarls Barkley single.

Great find, SF! I put this song on my Ipod the day after you originally posted it.

Need a translation. I'm not hip to all the lingo.

Trainspoter?
postal service?

Does anyone else think this guy looks like Kevin Spacey?

"Trainspotter? postal service?"

Trainspotter = person who comes up to the turntables to see what the DJ is playing.

Postal Service = Highly successful, critically ladued early 2000's collaboration between an indie rock dude (Ben from Death Cab for Cutie) and an electronic producer (Jimmie Tamborello).

I got this song after your last post about it. It is currently on my drive playlist. Great jam.

Love the song, but the video is pretty awful.
