Blackbird Blackbird is another one-person project of electronic bedroom dream pop. Within the amount of projects like this is starting to be difficult to keep up-to-date or make a difference between them, separating what is transcendent and personal from generic and insubstancial. The amount of stuff that people with personal projects put out for free up on the web (call it bandcamp, blogs or filesharing websites), makes even more difficult to put attention or discover genuine talent, although it sometimes is a great way of self-promotion as well. Blackbird Blackbird's music is interesting enough to put it on the side of "give it a try" with beautiful dream songs such as Hawaii or Summer Heart.
Mikey S. has been putting up some free songs and EPs on his Bandcamp for the last months and they've been highly commented on many blogs. Now he's compiled most of the tracks of those EPs on his first proper LP, called Summer Heart and available from yesterday as a download album but officially released on vinyl in September on Arcade Sound Limited.
