As the trend continues I’m posting the newest obscurities from around Northern California, I present to you Bye Bye Blackbird a glazed pop band from San Fransisco. A one man band, Mikey S keeps it frosty with this mellow 4 track Ep. It’s somewhere in between whimsical and divine, reminds me of Washed Out combined with Toro Y Moi with a dash of Marijuana.
