There’s something going on that’s not quite right between the bands Actual Birds, High Spirits, Showdown at the Equater, Kelly Jean Caldwell and the ever elusive Emily Jane Powers. If I ever find out what it is I’ll be sure to fill you in.
The Actual Birds are putting the finishing touches on their new record called Viva La Fantastique! Avec The Actual Birds, High Spirits and Friends. One of the friends is Emily Jane Powers who produced this little lofi wonder and who I wrote about here first. I originally called that post “obscure lo-fidelity” but now I would change it to “queen of midwest lo-fidelity”.
Anyway I find all of this lofi strumming and crooning highly entertaining so here’s a sneak preview of “Class Of 1977″ by the Actual Birds from their forthcoming record Viva….
An older song featuring Kelly Jean Caldwell and Fred Thomas of Saturday Looks Good To Me from the album The Sky Is Full Of Ghosts.
Bonus songs by Emily Jane Powers from her 2005 releases on Aritao Records. Buy them over there and help these kids stay in peanut butter and jelly and grilled cheese for another week.
