You Will Want To Clap Your Hands


The more music I discover, the more I learn that the indie musicians are just one big family. I first learned about Inara George on the Greys Anatomy Soundtrack. I loved her song "Fools in Love" so much that I bought her whole album All Rise. She has a very sweet voice that is fully displayed in all her unique songs. Each song sounds different, which is very refreshing since a lot of Cd's today just seem like one 40 minute song.
Inara George, All Rise

Little did I know the has an even better side project, I present to you: The Bird and The Bee. I discovered them about a year ago and have been in love ever since. It consists of the bird (inara) and the bee (Greg Kurstin) who mesh together to make AWESOME music! Much like the title of their band, their songs have cute beats and an innocent- like quality, but their meaning is something very dirty and sexy. All their music is great - I would recommend all of their debut album and their EP - Please Clap Your Hands - you're gonna wanna put on a cute shift and dance around your room like you're a go go girl (not that we already do that). Check out some of their music on my music player and some videos below:)



and did I mention that Inara is the coolest dresser?!?!

That first photo is amazing and gorgeous - the composition, the colors, the setting, everything. I just wish we could see her whole dress because I'm sure it's beautiful!

Ooo, the Bird and the Bee are fantastic. I had no idea she had a solo CD out--given her lovely voice, I shouldn't be surprised.

Thanks for the information!

Oh, she's so stylish! Is it wrong to be attracted to a songister for her clothes? If it is, I don't want to be right.

Inara has a side-project in the pipeline with Rod from Idlewild. Should be good. I never knew she was such a cutie!
