What We're Listening To: Prince

What We're Listening To: Prince

It is a sad day in rock n' roll my friends. Losing another legend like Prince is a little tough to swallow. Luckily, we still have his incredible catalog of music to lift our spirits and have been listening to him all day to commiserate. Here's hoping you get a chance to listen to your favorite Prin ...

Tell me a story.

Tell me a story.

Let's light a KITTEN candle and listen to Alice Coltrane and talk about when we were small.

Fall Playlist!

Fall Playlist!

Oh crap, it's getting colder. Fall is officially upon us, ya'll. It's time to bust out the flannels and curl up by the fire (or by the space heater if you're rocking that New York apartment lifestyle like me). With the help of my fellow birdettes, I've compiled a list of songs to help soothe you int ...

Summer Playlist!

Summer Playlist!

Summer is my favorite time of year! The days are longer, the nights are warm, and it's totally acceptable to eat ice cream as often as you like. Whether you're lounging at the beach, chilling by a pool,  barbecuing in the sun, or cruising around town, there's nothing like a perfect summer sound ...

What We're Listening To: Beck

What We're Listening To: Beck

Spring has finally sprung. Buds are blooming, layers are being shed, and it feels like we're all slowly waking up from that nightmare of a winter. Beck's new album Morning Phase seems to mirror that transition: dreamy, a bit somber (ugh, all that residual winter angst!), but sweetened with ...

What We're Listening To: Bat For Lashes

Inspired by today's visit to our shop by the lovely and talented Natasha Khan from Bat for Lashes, we're spinning her discography on repeat. We can attest, this lady is a stunner and unbelievably sweet!

What We're Listening To: Angel Olsen

What We're Listening To: Angel Olsen

Everyone seems to be buzzing about Angel Olsen lately, and after listening to her newest album, Burn Your Fire For No Witness, I caught myself saying "ahhh, I get it." Her music is this awesome mishmash of sullen folk mixed with 90's grunge that somehow comes across as both fresh and familiar. Also, ...

What We're Listening To: Mazzy Star

What We're Listening To: Mazzy Star

Nothing beats the queen of dream on a chilly November afternoon. That voice, that style, Hope Sandoval makes my list of all-time babes for sure.

Here she is singing "Blue Light" live in 1993. Swoon.

What We're Listening To: Still Corners

What We're Listening To: Still Corners

Rainy days in Brooklyn take me back to the few times I've had the chance to cross the pond and galavant around the streets of London. All that gloominess can feel dreamy and the dreariness seem sweet with the right soundtrack. London duo Still Corners, in my humble opinion, encompass all those senti ...

What We're Listening To: Neil Young

What We're Listening To: Neil Young

There's something about stormy weather that makes me want to curl up in my bed, sip some tea, and listen to Neil Young. Seeing as there's no bed or tea at the store, I'm happy to settle for just the listening to Neil part.You can listen along with us here:Also, can we all just agree right now that N ...

What We're Listening To: Blouse

What We're Listening To: Blouse

(Image via Captured Tracks)September has indeed arrived, and visions of hot cider and oversized sweaters have begun to fill our heads. It's a dreamy, nostalgic time as we transition from summer days at the beach to cozy evenings fireside. The soothing sounds of Portland-based dream-pop band Blouse s ...

What We're Listening To: Forrest Gump Soundtrack

What We're Listening To: Forrest Gump Soundtrack

Every morning when the birds flutter in to work, we decide on one thing: what should we listen to? The Thursday crew was indisputably united in today's decision. We wanted a mix of rock, soul, and pop from the 50's through 70's. The Forrest Gump soundtrack was mentioned, and a resounding "YES!" fill ...

Oh, You Fabulous Stain! Today's Music Inspiration

It's come to my attention that I'm not the only bird around here harboring a giant rock n' roll crush on these gals. If you've never seen the cult film, Ladies and Gentleman, The Fabulous Stains, you may be missing a piece of your punk rock soul.Check out teenage Diane Lane and Laura Dern in al ...

Summer Song

Summer Song
You are so right, Blondie. Sometimes New York gets so hot and humid, you feel like you are living in a fishbowl. (Also, I really like how you get all frisky with that Darth Vader-like dude.)

Enjoy!
