Owl City

I just found this band. You might think it is weird, but I love the electronic sound. Go on my actual blog page if you are reading this is a RSS feed reader. The first four tracks are Owl City. I'll put more that I like on as I listen a little more.

It's like The Postal Service 2.0... a little different, maybe a little more catchy. Here's the bio. Interesting story.

Owl City is the electronic brainchild of Adam Young, who launched the project in 2007 while living at his parents' home in Owatonna, MN. Troubled by insomnia, Young began spending his evenings in the household basement, where a computer and several instruments provided a welcome diversion from his sleeping patterns. He eventually combined those diversions into a blend of electronica and emo-pop, using little more than his computer and various keyboards to record the material. Songs were uploaded to MySpace upon completion, and Young began attracting a surprising amount of attention on the networking site. Of particular note was "Hello Seattle," a fabricated ode to the Emerald City whose viral popularity earned Young a record contract with Universal Republic. Ocean Eyes, his debut release for the label, arrived in 2009, coinciding with Owl City's first national tour.

Let me know what you think. There's a new post below too. Read up.

Very cool music - the kids like it too. Thanks for being the music guru for those of us who don't have time to seek out cool music but who really appreciate it!
