RARITIES | Blackbird Blackbird

FUELED BY THE MUSES: It seems Mikey Sanders of Blackbird Blackbird can do no wrong. He’s pumping out songs at an amazing rate. Following his 17-track release “Summer Heart” (an album called one the best of 2010 by Their Bated Breath), and a number of singles released via his tumblr page, Blackbird Blackbird now has seven more tracks. They’re compiled in a free EP called “Rarities”, available at his bandcamp page. These songs are all light and atmospheric — sexy, airy, delicate and wistful as cotton candy. Really lovely stuff. One of the standout tracks is the last one, “Twin Flames”, created with the help of Rachel Levy of Kiss Kiss Fantastic. It’s carried by elegant warped sounds, undulating synth, light tapping percussion and a wash of wind. Note: Photo by Rachel Levy — David D. Robbins Jr.
