Broken Bells "Meyrin Fields EP" (Columbia)
A year after releasing its acclaimed self-titled debut, Broken Bells scares up nearly 12 more minutes of music for the “Meyrin Fields EP.” The four tracks may be lowly castaways from the debut (code words “previously unreleased”), but the EP is bound to excite the band’s legions of fans. Broken Bells is James Mercer of The Shins and Brian Burton (aka Danger Mouse)—a duo that, in the minds of many, could do no wrong sonically or commercially. Personally—with each musician pulling from the same respective bag of tricks—I’m unamused. (JCC)
