MUSIC: Cee-Lo / Gnarls Barkley

In lieu of the upcoming Gnarls Barkley release ("St. Elsewhere"), I thought I'd connect a couple of the most recent dots on the duo's catalog (sorry, no Goodie Mob). Seems like a match made in heaven since both Cee-Lo's "Cee-Lo Green is the Soul Machine" and DJ Danger Mouse's collaboration with MF Doom ("Dangerdoom") got a ton of play in my world over the last year. Publicly, the first single (Crazy) is absolutely tearing up the charts (not to mention the noise all over the internet). Anyhow, here are a couple tracks that'll give some of you a sample of the previous work by these fine fellows.

::: Gnarls Barkley - Storm Coming [removed, copyright]
::: Cee-Lo - The Art of Noise (feat. Pharrell)
::: Jay-Z and DJ Danger Mouse - Dirt Off Your Shoulder
::: DangerDoom - Benzie Box (feat. Cee-Lo)

There's also a good Wikipedia page on Danger Mouse (I'm a big Wikipedia fan, it's such a time suck). As always, you can buy all these albums here, with the Gnarls Barkley release slated for May 9. Enjoy.
