Broken Bell, formed by Brian Burton aka Danger Mouse and James Mercer, offer an interview at the SXSW music conference. Some of the topics discussed include recording advice for young artists and pursuing an independent route in music.
I don’t think that independent was necessarily by choice. It was just by the fact that it’s what you had to do. - Danger Mouse
When nobody wants to put your stuff out and your stubborn, you figure out a way to do it. - James Mercer
