Returning from the critically acclaimed ‘Boracay Planet’, San Francisco’s Blackbird Blackbird takes his dreamy electronic pop to even greater heights with his forthcoming album ‘Tangerine Sky’ out this May on Om Records.
The lead single, ‘There Is Nowhere’ (Coming Feb 25th, 2014), is melancholic deconstructed soul that’s as heart wrenching as it is beautiful. Slowed down heavy drums dance with synths and Blackbird Blackbird’s crooning falsetto. This is beautiful, majestic and elegant music for a more civilized age. Make sure to check out the video on YouTube on February 17th.
The b-side is a drum heavy ambient tune called ‘Hold On’. Twinkling percussion and angelic vocals float over driving beats culminating in a whirlwind of electronic bliss. An exclusive unreleased track, ‘Hold On’ is already a fan favorite at Blackbird Blackbird shows.
Starting February 18th, catch Blackbird Blackbird on a 30 date European Tour that brings him to England, Norway, Spain, France, Czech Republic, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Italy and Russia.
Please join us Saturday February 1st for a stellar night of music featuring PillowTalk performing all new material from their forthcoming album live at Monarch. Also on the line up the mysterious and infectious sounds of dAvi A along with the the master blaster of Nite Moves Papa Lu. Of course Smoke n’ Mirrors residents Shiny Objects and Trev Campbell will be in full effect dropping the very best deep house, disco and techno.
Cheb i Sabbah was a musical pioneer, fusing together entire cultures of sound and music, pushing cutting edge blends of traditional songs with beats and ideas which were way ahead of his time.
“Chebiji” as he was affectionately known passed away November 6, 2013 at the age of 66 after being diagnosed with stomach cancer over 2 years ago. At that time he was given 4 weeks to live and through a combination of alternative therapies funded by his friends and fans, along with a sheer will to live, he exceeded all expectations for someone with an advanced stage of cancer.
We are releasing this special remaster as a benefit to his family: he has two kids and three grandkids, who are largely dependent on him. All the proceeds from this remix will go straight to the family.
