Why: Blackbird Blackbird was booked by Joel and scheduled to play day 4 of our SXSW showcases but a transportation disaster kept Mikey from the venue for hours. Had I heard him play that day I guarantee you this post would have happened months ago. I just didn’t know what I was missing. After finally tracking down his latest EP I was immediately blown away by “It’s A War.” What a rollicking piece of slightly dark tropical pop. The rest of Boracay Planet is full ofÂ shuffling andÂ twitching beats under dreamy guitars that blend together brilliantly. Especially “Happy With You” (&Â this great Yalls remix of itÂ here!) So it turns out the guy has been making music for years. His Bandcamp is a treasure trove of previous releases.Â Cheers to many more!
