Review: Broken Bells - Meyrin Fields EP

When Broken Bellsí self titled album was released last year it was a breath of fresh air from two highly respected workhorses and cult figures of the music community. On one hand you had indie rock godhead James Mercer of The Shins fame, and on the other you had restless hyper-producer Brian Burton AKA Danger Mouse. It was an unusual pairing that yielded some remarkable results in their sole album together thus far. It was a brief affair coming in at only 37 minutes, whetting our collective appetite but not leaving us completely satisfied. Perhaps it was a conscious effort in self-editing or a deliberate ploy to leave the world hanging out for more. Well, more is what we have gotten in the form of their new EP, Meyrin Fields. In general the EP is more focused on their awkward electro pop elements than the airy, cathartic ballads of the main album.
