- Summer Heart by Blackbird Blackbird
Blackbird Blackbird (formerly known as Bye Bye Blackbird) is the work of literature major and dream-pop explorer Mikey Sanders. Widely respected in internet circles and a star of The Hype Machine, Mr. Sanders crafts a sophisticated variation on the sound now widely recognised to be 'Glo-fi'. It's a mash up of shoegaze, dream-pop and electronic influences that takes in a little progressive pop along the way. Reminiscent of Washed Out or Memory Tapes but less heavily dependent on beats, 'Summer Heat' comes off sounding like a mutation of early Saint Etienne and M83 for a dance-floor friendly generation. These are undeniably pleasant pop sounds. Sanders is like the Japan of this dream-gaze (or whatever) scene in terms of production skills which are effortlessly lush and elegant throughout this eighteen track collection. If you like any of the bands/artists mentioned in this review you'll more than likely have some time for this lad.
