When you’re out there on your own, know there’s someone watching over you.
The above lyrics have been in my head for a few days. I find it incredibly comforting. Every time I hear the song “Oh Sailor” by Mr, Little Jeans, aka Norwegian singer Monica Birkenes, I feel a little better about life. The song features children’s voices stringing beautiful words together in a soft blend of pop and gnarled snyths.
I first became a fan of Mr. Little Jeans perform this past summer as part of L.A. area radio station KCRW’s free summer concert series. Aren’t free things the best?
Give “Oh Sailor,” “Good Mistake” and the cover of Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs” and tell me what you think. I hope you become a fan too!
