Danger Mouse has produced some of the most memorable music of the past decade, collaborating with the likes of Sparklehorse, Beck and The Black Keys. Now comes a new project with James Mercer, frontman for The Shins. Danger Mouse and Mercer are calling their venture Broken Bells. The duo's new, self-titled CD isn't out until March, but you can hear a sneak preview in this edition of All Songs Considered. Also on the program: new music from Yeasayer, the Swedish pop group Shout Out Louds, and some great discoveries from Freelance Whales and Local Natives. Also, we celebrate our 10th anniversary with a look back at our very first episode of All Songs Considered.
