Mercer was tied up as singer, songwriter and guitarist for The Shins and Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton) kept himself busy working with Gnarls Barkley; Gorillaz; The Good, The Bad and The Queen; DANGERDOOM; Beck; The Shortwave Set; The Black Keys; Ike Turner and others, as well as his brilliant 2009 collaboration with Sparklehorse, Dark Night of the Soul.

But in 2008, the pair found time to hit the studio together and “the musical floodgates opened.” The result is a self-titled album that has drawn glowing praise from critics and raves from fans since its release in early March.

Now MySpace Music’s “Transmissions” series is offering an intimate live set from Broken Bells, which was recorded and filmed at The Village in Santa Monica, Calif.

The collection, available to all MySpace members for download, features stripped-back renditions of a number of Broken Bells compositions, including “The Ghost Inside,” “The High Road,” “October,” and “Vaporize.”
