I’ll admit that I thought it’d be a little bit before we heard any non-Broken Bells stuff from James Mercer, so this caught me a bit by surprise. James Mercer played a new — presumably Shins — song with Joe Plummer (Shins, Modest Mouse, Mister Heavenly) in Portland.
Broken Bells’ new EP Meyrin Fields hit stores this week, but you don’t have to wait months to see those songs lives. You can check out a live studio performance of “Heartless Empire” over at Spinner. It sounds a little less powerful than their set at the Mohawk did, but I guess not having a real audience can subtract a bit from the performance.
