Paper Bird

It's time for an Album of the Week! I know it's been a while, but I've been brewing up a nice batch of fresh tunes. The band that produced this week's album is called Paper Bird, they're a little big band out of Boulder, Colorado, I say little big because they have 7 members and aren't that well known... yet.

The album is called Anything Nameless and Joymaking which was released back in 2007. I've actually been listening to it on repeat for the last 5 or so days, it's amazing. It's Indie Rock, Folk, kind of Indie Pop, and has some very obvious Jazz influences, but early Jazz with the banjo and all. My favorite tracks from it are Livin Lucky, which has become my theme song of late, it's incredibly up beat and fun, but not overbearingly so. Another great is Bumblebee which isn't on youtube, so go here and check it out. Then there's Pennies and my second favorite song off of the album, Jesus and Arizona, once again no good video on youtube.

Do yourself a favor and buy this album. Notice, I said BUY, don't download this one, it's a small band and they're great. Also, make everyone you know buy it too because it's amazing and they deserve to get big.

Keep on keepin' on
