Sifting through the blogosphere everyday,
this is the kind of find that I wait for.
Bye Bye Blackbird takes everything I like about
acts like Neon Indian, Toro Y Moi, and Passion Pit
and throws away all the things I don't like.
Typical "chillwave" bands always have some sort of offensive element
(the sometimes grating vocals from Passion Pit,
or the usually grating quality of Neon Indian)
but I love every part of this EP.
The quality is warm and close to your ears,
but still distant and ambiguous - not giving it all away at once.
