Broken Bells, Au Revoir Simone 

When: Sat., March 1, 8 p.m. 2014
On Broken Bells' self-titled debut, which came out in March [2010] on Columbia, [James Mercer] sometimes sings in a quasi-soul falsetto, higher than anything I've ever heard from him ("The Ghost Inside"), or uses his guitar to heighten the Morricone-esque drama of Burton's production ("Mongrel Heart"). The second half of the album flags a bit, but reports from the road suggest that the live band improves the depth and vitality of all the songs. —Peter Margasak, 2010
