[new] Blackbird Blackbird – Calypso

By Will Oliver, July 3rd 2011

I was sleeping on the job when Mikey dropped a new Blackbird Blackbird song called “Calypso”. Dark hypnotic rhythms of dark waves haunt this track. Mikey has become a master of creating visceral electronic jams that pack a lot of emotion without using any words at all.

This may be on his new EP Passions that he has been hinting at on the Blackbird Blackbird facebook page. Any EP would be lucky to feature a track this good.

Blackbird Blackbird – Overboard

By Will Oliver, April 22nd 2011

Blackbird Blackbird is hard at work on his new album, Erasers (that’s the album art above). We can’t wait to hear it.

New song “Overboard” plays off as a perfect teaser. Mikey leads us on a journey to the new sounds and ideas that he will showcase on Eraser, but he’s not revealing it in it’s entirety just yet. “Overboard” is a light yet effective song that is the perfect length. I’m already dying to hear more.

Eraser will feature about 10-12 songs, and will be released late this summer.

I came home for the day just to see Klaxons show @ Maxwell’s in Hoboken, NJ tonight.

I don’t got too much time to post, but I wanted to share this amazing cover that the hardworking Blackbird Blackbird did of Modest Mouse’s “Float On”. He transformed it into a dreamy, synthed out delight that gives the song a whole new feel. He took the task of “covering” to the highest level.

Download the cover below. I found it via Wild Tonic.

Mikey a.k.a. Blackbird Blackbird just hit me up with a new song called “Modern Disbelief” that is a sweet hazy jam. It’s pretty hot up at school, and this song is playing to the conditions pretty well. It’s going to be an exclusive bonus on his Summer Heart LP which will be released via Arcade Sound Ltd. on September 28. It features a Marvin Gaye “Night Fever” sample. He also said that the song was a result of listening to a lot of Joy Division.
