    Broken Bells - the somewhat unlikely partnership between Danger Mouse and The Shins' James Mercer - are on the cusp of releasing their second album together, titled After The Disco. As bands tend to do these days, the pair is teasing new material in an interesting way, rolling out a short film based on a story of the same name by Danger Mouse. The film stars Anton Yelchin and Kate Mara and seems to follow a sweet, intergalactic love affair that's tested by bigger, cosmic powers. The first part, titled Angel And The Fool, is fun to watch of course, but the real treat here are the snippets of score that cut in and out of the background; presumably fragments of the forthcoming album due in January. What we hear is dreamy, imaginative, warm, and moody, the duo sounding as if they are entering a more cinematic, goose-bump inducing phase of their music making together. We're excited. Are you?
