This is one of those unsearchable artists, much like the band Girls. The album title doesn't help either because its simply titled 2. Google's number one page result is Desire 2 Learn, a Millersville University online education platform. Millersville University, Sieze the Opportunity. GO PIRATES!

Back in the saddle after a week of constant travel. I write to you a shell of a man who wants nothing more than to spread good tunes.
Brooklyn based Tei Shi popped up on my Soundcloud the other day and I have to say I'm instantly hooked to her Iamamiwhoami vibe.

I'm not usually a proponent of cuteness. For example, I dont don't care about puppy pictures or slow loris videos. But this girl is pretty irresistible, and also the way she says backpack... I think having a killer bass riff and dad-music saxophone helps a ton as well.

Jonny Jewel has been on my mind a lot lately. Over the years I've mentioned in posts that songs would appear on the soundtrack to my life. Well JJ has pretty much invented the concept of a fake soundtrack. M83 too, but I'm under the impression that great things happen simultaneously at different parts of the world at the same time. As if the idea is out there and these two channeled it at the same time. The Chromatics are pretty much the best case scenario of a band that makes a fake soundtrack to your favorite fake movie. Tequila Sunrise meets Blue Velvet. "But I Killed For Love" That's passion baby. I have to admit, m83 flies pretty close to perfection with Before the Dawn Heals Us and it's spine tingling poetic track Car Chase Terror. Those early M83 albums, to me, really appear to have influenced Cliff Martinez and his soundtrack to Drive, which was produced by none other than Jonny Jewel.

Something tells me we can expect hear a ton more from BÃ˜RNS. With a Portugal The Man base and a dash of poppy synth it's undeniably a hit recipe for a popular band. Their EP, Candy, gives off the same vibes as MGMT and Passion Pits early work - while we all know those bands are just completely relevant these days we can't deny their early work was spot on.
Basically what I'm saying is - when BÃ˜RNS is playing Madison Square Garden and you ask me to go see the show I'll say "We posted them like 2 and half years ago get with the times."

I can't speak the language, so i just repeat to the beat... you're a babe, you're a babe, you're a babe, babe babe babe yeeeee. I do know that the duo are Brooklyn based Puerto Rican's and their EP was produced by Dev Hynes, who can apparently do no wrong. Except I thought I saw you in a Starbucks the other day buddy. If that's correct, me and you need to sort some shit out.
