Birds with hats on: Aviary Ghost
Who? Aviary Ghost
What? Melodic folkpop
Sounds like? Belle & Sebastian, All things Swedish, Jens Lekman with less emphasis on the catchiness. Something with falsettos.
So, I’m not dead. Because i want to treat you on a lot of good new music i’ve discovered over the last couple of weeks and months, i’ll keep my texts short.
The first band is Aviary Ghost, a 5-piece from Chicago, who make lushly arranged pop songs. Their songs are very whistable (if that’s a word.. meaning you could listen and whistle to them). And the cool thing is that their album is free. You do have to sign up for their monthly news letter, but since you do want to know what this band is up to, that’s not even a burden. I really recommend you doing so, cause this is actually something that should be loved by the indie crowd en masse.
You can find the download instructions on their website
