New Tunes Tuesday: Blind Pilot
This week we are going to talk about Blind Pilot. They are one of T's and my favorite band. They are played around this house daily and T asks for them by name a lot. I don't quiet remember how I discovered them, I think I randomly found them on i-tunes one day and it was love at first listen. I have actually saw them live, they opened for The Decemberists last year on their Hazards of Love Tour, one of the best concerts ever by the way.
On to the music....
I would call them an Indie Folk band, they have a traditional sound that I love. T's favorite part of the band is the banjo and upright bass, which by the way he thinks Santa is bring him those 2 things for Christmas HAH. If you like, Avertt Brothers, The Decemberists, Mumford and Son, any bands along those lines you will love Blind Pilot.
They have one cd, 3 Rounds and A Sound with another one coming out this September called We are Tide. They also have an ep on i-tunes with a cover of Gillian Welch's "Look at Miss Ohio" which is amazing!
My favorite songs in no particular order
"The Story I Heard"
"Paint or Pollen"
"Look at Miss Ohio"
I can't wait for the new cd to come out heres a link to their Page with a free download of their new song!
