Broken Bells, the indie rock project from Brian Burton a/k/a Danger Mouse and James Mercer, the lead vocalist for The Shins, cut their self-titled debut album in 2010.  The album, a mix of synth pop and indie rock with hints of folk and disco was so well received, the duo was basically ordered by its fans to deliver a second album.  After the Disco, slated for release on January 14, 2014, appears to contain the elements that made their first album successful but veers more towards the 70s era.  The first single off the sophomore effort, “Holding on for Life,” could easily be found on an ABBA greatest hits album.  Mercer’s falsettos and Burton’s beat match perfectly to create a smooth track that’ll make you feel like one of Studio 54’s VIPs.  Enjoy.
