Broken Bells - The Ghost Inside
----------------Today neighborhoods around the nation opened their chlorine, urine-detecting swimming pools to the masses. I was among those paler than snow pilgrims, and needed something new to listen to while roasting the melanin in my bod. I slathered on some Broken Bells, a New York duo that melds together minimalist electro-rock.
Broken Bells "The Ghost Inside" from Broken Bells self-titled album claps around a tick-tock guitar and a catchy sing along chorus fit for Bee Gees singers and helium users. Other songs from the album like "The High Road" messes with cheesy jazz keyboards, suddenly nodding into a glassy ride around acoustic guitars and an outlaw atmosphere.
