Wow. Without sounding too Paris Hiltonish, this album is hot. A terrific collaboration from Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo, St. Elsewhere ($12; May 9) landed in our downloads folder just in time to save us from this year's boring music offerings. There's seriously no way to categorize the album — sometimes it sounds like hip-hop soul, sometimes it reminds you of golden oldies, and sometimes it sounds like current indie rock with a little more flair. There's just not very much music out there that can actually
make you feel cooler just listening to it. But
this album does. Standout tracks: "Crazy,"
"Smiley Faces" and "Just A Thought."
