Kite Flying Society are just as fun as their name might imply. These San Diegoians (sic?) sound a bit like the Kinks mixed with the Shins, but unfortunately have yet to release a full length album. Hopefully that situation will be fixed soon, as they’re in the studio right now.
MP3: Kite Flying Society – 6000 Shipwrecks
MP3: Kite Flying Society – Love & Seagulls
The subtle use of handclaps in the chorus of ‘6000 Shipwrecks’ caps off a pretty amazing song. It feels a bit like Rogue Wave Jr at times, but I mean that in the best possible way. All in all, it this band make me wish that we hadn’t just had a minor blizzard at UK. This is spring music, people!
Another MP3 here.
Andrew Bird’s show at the Louisville Free Public Library was awesome. He played a couple new tunes, all of which I got on video, as well as some old classics. Hello as well to the three girls who go to school in Louisville and came up to say ‘hi.’
Sixeyes did a nice interview with Dan Bejar.
Two new Vines songs up at IGIF.
Clever Titles Are So Last Summer is doing a cool ‘Love Sucks’ theme. With luck I should be doing something vaguely similar around V-day.
Vinyl is So In has the video of Broken Social Scene on Conan.
So I’d never seen the video for Feist’s “Mushaboom” – it is the cutest thing ever.
