The first time I really listened to any of Danger Mouse’s output was when he worked on Beck’s excellent Modern Guilt record two years ago (I’m a huge Beck fanboy). Earlier this year, I was enthralled by the Broken Bells record, where he collaborated with James Mercer of the Shins. And earlier this month, we got the official release of the long-delayed collaboration between him and the late, much-lamented Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse. I’ve been listening to that disc over and over and over since then.
Can he simply do no wrong?
