california dreaming...

a band that i fell in love with while i was in san francisco, is the san francisco based "blackbird blackbird" (also bye bye blackbird). the one man behind this band "mikey sanders." creates very short but fascinating electronic and dreamy popsongs. the sound is pretty similar to other chillwave bands such as "memoryhouse", "washed out", "memory tapes" or "millionyoung". mikey’s inspiring pop sensibility is channeled through a dreamy landscape of sound that is as hypnotic as it is catchy, as upbeat as it is ambient. wonderful album.... and another great soundtrack for this summer.
9,5/10 (fk)
