now playing:tuesday - Sucré

from my instagram @ezzimcgee

Today's now playing feature is the debut album, A Minor Bird, from
This band is made up of Stacy King (from Eisley), Darren King (Mute Math), and Jeremy Larson (Husband to Else from A Beautiful Mess)...talk about an a crazy talented group. 
The album just dropped today and I will admit i pushed the 'buy' button at 12:05a this morning so that it would be ready for me to listen to when i woke up this morning. 
The name of the band describes itself....sweet.  Stacy has a such a pure and angelic voice you cant help wanting to listen to.  The songs are well written, melodic but still catchy.  You can tell that it's Darren on the drums, although he has a certain technique for drums almost like a unique signiture, he keeps it soft and very fitting to the music.  Jeremy, the multi instrument wonder, is amazing as always.
The best way for me to describe this album....had this been out when the movie Garden State was made it would have most certainly been on the soundtrack.  If you are a fan of Eisley, Imogen Heap, Frou Frou, Lia Ices, or perhaps Feist you will love this album.
You can purchase the full album now on the iTunes for only $7.99.  For 11 amazing songs thats a pretty good deal.

Perhaps the things that excites me most about this band is that they are coming to Houston on April 22nd and playing with some of my good friends - Finnegan (also available on iTunes).  To add to the excitement Elsie (from A Beautiful Mess Blog) will be traveling with her husband (Jeremy) for this short tour, and unless she is completely bombarded, I might be able to stop by and say hello.  Elsie has a special place in my heart because she was the very first blog i ever read before i realized just how big the blog world was.  She is a great source of inspiration for anyone looking to follow their creative dreams.  Enough gushing....go check out the album and let me know what you think.
