After a Hectic Day…

After a crazy, hectic, eventful day I came back to my apartment and decided to do some new music searching. Luckily, this music search brought me to one of my favorite new duo, the Birds of Chicago. Yeah, the name might not sound that appealing (especially since the Hitchcock movie “the Birds” left me with a terrifying mark of the two legged creatures) however, their smooth vocals and background instruments made my mind venture off into relaxation mode where I was pondering through thoughts of love and companionship. Ok, enough of my revelation and back to the music….. The Birds of Chicago , J.T. Nero and Allison Russell, were at SXSW this year, however I did not hear of them until just recently. Their song “I Have Heard Words” spiritually connected to me and I could relate to the lyrics being sung. Russells vocals are phenomenal and put me at ease, For some reason while listening to this song I can just imagine myself sipping an Arnold Palmer on a country side somewhere in South Carolina enjoying the simplicities of life. Their North American Roots/ American folk music will definitely be something added to my upcoming July 4th playlist!

Blondfire ♫, ♥, & ☮

This eclectic new duo reminds me of MGMT. Their indie pop mixed with electro makes me want to ride with the top down through Topanga Canyon! Blondfire has been out for a while now but I had never shared my love for their music till now! This song is upbeat and something that you can joyfully sing along to! The lyrics alone remind you of youth, careless, and wreckless behavior.The fringe and mountainous terrain that is present in this video perfectly captures the targeted sound of the song! Hopefully we will be seeing them at Coachella this spring!
