From an LA magazine called C. This room is so pretty with it’s lovely balance of light, dark, and rich textures. Plus, I have yet to see a room featuring Anthropologie’s Campaign bed that wasn’t improved by its presence. The suzani as coverlet, offset chandelier, and small gilt framed art are all nice touches. All in all, a completely inspiring room.
This duo hails from Los Angeles, CA. They met when producer/keyboardist Greg Kurstin began producing singer Inara George’s solo album. They decided to form a duo instead and The Bird and The Bee was born. They have a cool, jazzy-synthpop sound that is totally easy on the ears. This is fun music, a little hipster-ish… but not so much your eyeballs will be rolling.
I have Hall and Oates to thank for introducing me to this band. I was looking for song by that venerable 70’s duo when I ran across a clip of The Bird and The Bee doing “I Can’t Go For That”. I loved it!
Check out this video of them doing an original song at an ASCAP showcase.
Over the last two weeks, I tried to come up with a slightly more coherent posting plan and today is day one of that plan. On Friday, I posted about self taught British singer Andreya Triana… and that was just a taste of the new regular feature here: Music Mondays. Yep, every Monday I’ll be sharing my faves and new discoveries. (FAIR WARNING: I like most genres of music, so there’s bound to be something for everyone!)
Sometime last year I got a free (and legal) mp3 download of a song called Undertow by an L.A. band called Warpaint. The name makes them sort of sound like bad metal but what they are is a trio of female musicians making beautiful, haunting songs. I can’t recommend them enough. Check out their full length album The Fool… it’s amazing!
To give you a sample here are links to videos for Undertow and Elephant (from the Exquisite Corpse EP). I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
