Get To Know Coachella, Pt. 2

So you don't know all of the bands that are playing Coachella but you're totally psyched about going? No problem, that's what we're here for. And even if you're not going to Coachella, it doesn't hurt to learn about some fresh talent. Today, we'll learn about Los Angeles' The Bird and the Bee, who are relatively unknown amongst the people that I speak to despite their million MySpace plays and being signed to a major label.

The Bird and the Bee are a core duo of Greg Kurstin and Inara George, however, when they are on the road the duo becomes an ensemble of seven. Kurstin is a producer and keyboardist who has worked previously with Beck, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Lily Allen. George is a professional singer and met Kurstin while she was recording her debut album. The two dug each others style and decided to create a jazz-influenced electro-pop project. They have been featured on Grey's Anatomy twice, an iPod commercial that never aired and a remix of one of their songs soared to the number one spot on U.S. Club Dance Charts in December 2006. Their new EP, One Too Many Hearts (Blue Note), was released last week on Valentine's Day.

This has always been my favorite song of theirs, Inara's voice is just so smooth. Forgive the download however, we are out of bandwidth for the next week so I will be uploading songs for download onto Mediafire. It's a pretty simple site but if you can't figure it out just leave a comment saying so.
