The 1975 – “You” (Blackbird Blackbird Remix)”

The 1975 - You (Blackbird Blackbird Remix)

A little familiar, a little spooky, and a little groovy. One of my favorite songs of one of my favorite new bands gets a magical and spacey Blackbird Blackbird remix treatment.

[PLAYLIST] The Best SONGS of 2012 – Part 2 (July-Dec)

TBE-Best-of-2012-Songs

Screw the Oscars! Now that the site is back up we can continue the (very late) Best of 2012 Awards!

[EP] Blackbird Blackbird – BORACAY PLANET (w/ “It’s A War “)

which are you waiting for?

  • Who: Mikey Maramag
  • What: Oversized dream pop, like Toro Y Moi, KidsOf88, Humans
  • Where: San Francisco, CA + Facebook
  • When: Buy Boracay Planet now.
  • 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 of shuffling and twitching beats under dreamy guitars that blend together brilliantly. Especially “Happy With You” (& this great Yalls remix of it here!) So it turns out the guy has been making music for years. His Bandcamp is a treasure trove of previous releases. Cheers to many more!
