The Bird and the Bee

Inara George is Lowell George's daughter. He was a musician who swung with the in-crowd in Cali in the 70s, with people like Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstandt, while in his own band, Little Feat. Inara put out a CD that was lovely if not a little boring a few years back. But this year, she's teamed with this guy Greg Kurstin who has set her whole sweet sound to some elctronic beats. Throw in some foul language sing-songed in that light and airy voice and you've got yourself a hit in my book. Seriously, I love this little EP they put out in advance of their full-length that comes out at the first of the new year. This is the perfect soundtrack for my MS Getting Over the Dork You Used to Call a Boyfriend !

The Bird and the Bee, "I'm a Broken Heart"

Oddly, I haven't even had this CD a whole month and look what I found in its case? Why it's Journey's Greatest Hits!

Journey, "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'"

There is more Bird & Bee on their MySpace page.
