Indefinite Hiatus

I am saddened to say that I will have to put my blog on an indefinite hiatus due to the fact that I currently have more than I can handle on my plate. I want to thank everyone that has ever visited this blog. I hope I have pleasured your eardrums.

You may continue to follow me on Twitter, where I will still post song recommendations and links to any other cool music related news/songs/etc. I will also continue to be a guest-blogger on Pretty Much Amazing! The Music Blog.

Birdy Nam Nam - New Birth

Today marks the 100th post on this blog! I demand cookies!! Thanks for all those who've stopped by and continue to stop by. Hope I continue to make your ears quiver with joy. I must admit it was weird not posting over the weekend. I got so accustomed to writing on here everyday save for the occasional lapses due to life. But onward we go!

Birdy Nam Nam is a group of four DJs from France. Their music is created entirely from turntables as you can see in the picture. Despite being turntablists their songs aren't filled with scratching but are actually well composed and filled with all sorts of influences. The entire album is super mellow and something that's definitely "chill" inducing. And I don't mean the kind of chill you'd get on a winter night. Their name comes from a line in Peter Seller's movie--The Party. I saw this movie when I was a kid and remember thinking it was hilarious. Unfortunately I have no recollection of anyone saying "birdy nam nam" in it. But then again, I barely remember most of the movie. ANYWAY ...

"New Birth" is off their self titled debut album. It's a good example of how they fuse elements of jazz with various sound bites to form some sort of "trip hop" like track.

Favourite Part: I really dig the saxophone that plays throughout the song.
