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!
The Haim sisters know how to rock out and make famous friends. Based on that, I’d say they’re going to make it big soon. Hey, Harry Styles tweeted something like that about the sisters. Just the other day I noticed someone on Twitter said something about Este Haim’s bass face. It seems like that’s something of a meme now. Besides all that, they’re gorgeous talented Los Angeles natives who just got signed with Jay Z’s entertainment company Roc Nation.
I saw them perform at Coachella and in my opinion they are even better live. I wouldn’t have even known to listen to them, but my BF’s sister did. She knows all the cool things before they’re cool. I just thought I would pass the knowledge on.
Get listening. Care to read more? Here’s a SPIN article on the trio.
