The Bird and The Bee: Don't worry, it's not an awkward childhood conversation.

Los Angeles' The Bird and the Bee are an electro-pop collaboration between Inara George and Greg Kurstin who, for some reason, can be found on noted jazz label Blue Note Records. Understated music and hooks meld wonderfully with Inara's semi-dry, laconic singing voice, creating songs that get stuck in your head for days, and that's exactly where you'll want them. With a couple of LPs and a handful of EPs out, it's good to see what started out as a simple side project blossom into something a bit more permanent.

  1. Very good stuff, but I can't see how they fit on Blue Note. Unless the jazz records aren't selling well these days and the label needs to cash in on the scenster class.
