ACL Fest Sunday Interviews
Escape from St. Elsewhere
Music Story  September 26, 2008, by Chase Hoffberger
"...This month's issue of Esquire lists Danger Mouse as one of "The 75 Most Influential People of the 21st Century." He is, both literally and figuratively, the most understated and off-the-mic individual you've heard of on that list. Jon Stewart, LeBron James, Barack Obama: These are people who crave the spotlight, seek out the audience...."

The Gunman
Sean Penn stars as a regretful ex-mercenary in this international game of cat and mouse
starstar
Film Review  March 20, 2015, by Steve Davis
"...When a death squad searching for the “white man” attempts to kill him, however, it’s clear that yesterday’s sins have finally caught up with this marked man. What ensues in The Gunman is an international game of cat and mouse that hopscotches from central Africa to London to Barcelona to Gibraltar, one in which Penn's beleaguered Jim Terrier tries to piece together the identities of his would-be assassins while protecting the woman he loves from the danger sparked by his nefarious past...."

Norah Jones
Norah Jones in a Russ Meyer flick? Just kidding.
Music Story  March 16, 2012, by Dan Oko
"...For all this, Jones remains down to earth, although her upcoming Little Broken Hearts, due out May 1, offers a range of textures and spooky sounds typically not associated with her past work. Much credit for the makeover goes to producer Brian Burton, aka Danger Mouse, who co-wrote each of the dozen tracks recorded in his studio during six weeks last year...."

ACL Music Fest 2014 Saturday Reviews
Music Story  October 2, 2014, by Abby Johnston
"...Sci-fi sounds strange coming from an Oregonian folk peddler and hip-hop guru, but Broken Bells' sophomore surprise pulses galactic dreams. Landing us smack in the middle of a universe of shiny production and Eighties synth influence, After the Disco quickly settles into a groove balancing Shins frontman James Mercer and production brain Danger Mouse's home genre disparities..."

The Shins
Music Review  March 16, 2012, by Michael Toland
"...The last time we heard from James Mercer, he'd teamed up with Danger Mouse in Broken Bells, broadening his audience beyond the indie rock faithful and giving fans permission to ride the groove. Given the Bells' success, it was inevitable that Mercer would bring some of that mojo back to his main project..."

Off the Record
SXSW news and carryings on
Music Column  March 19, 2010, by Austin Powell
"...The best SXSW surprises are never actually surprises, but well-orchestrated events leaked with just enough time to spare. Broken Bells, the new collaboration between the Shins' James Mercer and beat scientist Danger Mouse, was the subject of the Conference's first free Pop-Up Show, and despite the location (in this case, the lower level of the parking garage across from Stubb's) being confirmed via Twitter only hours beforehand, the show still reached capacity with 30 minutes to spare..."

Heart Gently Weeps
All things must pass: Dhani Harrison and Thenewno2
DAILY Music  October 30, 2009, by Austin Powell
"...DH: Oh completely. I figured once The Grey Album came out… Danger Mouse must have worked so hard to get all of those little bits from the actual CDs and not from multi-tracks..."

ACL Fest Saturday Picks
The blurbing of ACL 2008
Music Story  September 26, 2008
"...The Black Keys' 2002 debut landed them in a pack of bands that sounded like the White Stripes, but their greasy authenticity quickly established them as leaders. 2008's Attack & Release (Nonesuch) launched the Akron, Ohio, duo into the second phase of its career, tricking out swinging blues-rock with the bells and whistles of Danger Mouse's production..."

ACL Saturday by the blurb
Music Story  October 8, 2010
"...On paper it's a perfect pairing: the Shins' James Mercer with Brian Burton, better known as Danger Mouse, the beat chemist behind Gnarls Barkley. While the odd couple's perfect single "The High Road" demonstrated mad chemistry, their self-titled debut as Broken Bells, released earlier this year, never quite lived up to expectations..."

Doom
Music Review  April 10, 2009, by Chase Hoffberger
"...Since 2005's The Mouse and the Mask collaboration with Danger Mouse, Doom's activity sunk so low that rumors began about the London-born, New York-bred rapper, aka Daniel Dumile, hiring ghost performers to handle his sets. Born Like This, his third disc, won't encourage the idea that he's done much during the hiatus besides drop the MF from his moniker and work on his tongue twisters, but the Madvillain sells it..."

TSOP
DAILY Music  June 13, 2008, by Raoul Hernandez
"...And yet from their very first notes, pop-hop’s pied pipers summoned 1960s Motown down to their frontman’s falsetto. Stiffly-dressed yet hopped up, the mini big band sped through new Danger Mouse droppings such as “Whatever” and Cee-Lo slow jam “Who’s Gonna Save My Soul?” Their black Southern deacon, meanwhile, preached to a throng of mostly white kids like every Hitsville USA act before him..."

Norah Jones
'… Little Broken Hearts'
Music Story  July 13, 2012, by Dan Oko
"...Norah Jones steps into the danger zone on her fifth album, teaming with producer Brian "Danger Mouse" Burton, who instills burbling beats and old-timey atmospherics. The resultant ....."

Brownout
Music Review  May 18, 2012, by Austin Powell
"...With Oozy, Brownout remains in endless pursuit of the groove, but never quite settles into one. Highlights include Dan Dyer lending Gulf Coast soul to the hazy "Stormy Weather," bassist Greg Gonzalez's "JPT" scoring a warped spaghetti Western more interesting than Danger Mouse's Rome, and the space rock expanse of "I Won't Lie." The through line remains guitarist Beto Martinez, a superfreak composer who always coaxes out Brownout's kinkiest qualities..."

Dark Side of the Potterverse
Brad Neely's 'Wizard People, Dear Readers' and the volatility of artistic alchemy
Screens Story  July 23, 2004, by Spencer Parsons
"...Call it artistic appropriation, theft, or piracy, it's as American as our national anthem, manifest destiny, and rock & roll. So then why is it that from Star Wars re-edits to Danger Mouse's Gray Album, we get our boxers in such a bundle over intellectual property?..."

Sunday ACL Fest Record Reviews
Woodstock (Atlantic)
Music Story  October 5, 2017, by Alejandra Ramirez
"...In 2011, these Alaskans joined Atlantic Records for In the Mountain in the Cloud, then teamed up with acclaimed producer Danger Mouse for the eclectic Evil Friends (2013), so why not aspire to new commercial heights on Woodstock? Built along their psych rock foundations, rock bombast ("Live in the Moment," "Rich Friends") and EDM ("Number One," "Easy Tiger") are favored over the group's messier edges of prog ambition. "I'm a rebel just for kicks now" states "Feel It Still." It's not only a hollow testament, it's a sell-out..."

Grandaddy
Last Place (Columbia)
Music Story  March 16, 2017, by Abby Johnston
"...Self-aware and refined, fifth album Last Place – the first in 11 years – is astonishingly solid. Production help from Danger Mouse gives a kick to Grandaddy's more meandering tendencies on "This Is the Part" and "The Boat Is in the Barn." "I Don't Wanna Live Here Anymore" takes residence in your ear canal where all of the band's original compositions reside..."

Music Story  March 17, 2016, by Michael Toland
"...trio from capitalizing on its own momentum. Third LP Pussy's Dead drops on Danger Mouse's label with production from Boots (Beyoncé, Run the Jewels)..."

Blurbs on the hour
Music Story  October 1, 2015
"...The Harlem MC, born Rakim Mayers, mourned in private, but At.Long.Last.A$AP (RCA) offers candid insight to his grief. Danger Mouse-produced centerpiece "Pharsyde" goes deep on the gentrification on his native hood..."

D’Angelo’s Intimate SXSW
Samsung’s invite-only rooftop set for 100
DAILY Music  March 16, 2015, by Chase Hoffberger
"...When Paul Qui’s cooking dinner while ?uestlove smiles and spins soul samples, and you’re hanging next to Jay Pharoah and Danger Mouse and 98 others who may be famous but also may be simply lucky winners picked off the street, it’s hard to harp on the truth that D’Angelo only played for 30 minutes...."
