The Bird and the Bee were my musical obsession all last winter. Their debut album sent chills down my spine, and it made the perfect record for a winter’s day. The duo are due to release their second record titled “Ray Guns Are Not Just the Future” on Blue Note which will be out around January 2009.
Yes this seems like a wait, but I’m expecting nothing more than genius from this new record. From the tracks that have been leaked you can tell they are taking their sound up a notch but still remain to be the same band we love. The Bird and the Bee are also on a short tour which will be expanded of course when the new record comes out.
Ray Guns Are Not Just the Future:
02 My Love
03 Diamond Dave
04 What’s in the Middle
05 Ray Gun
06 Love Letter to Japan
10 Polite Dance Song
11 You’re a Cad
14 Lifespan of a Fly
