Birdcloud is Two Tennessee Girls with Stringed Instruments and Potty Mouths

"Birdcloud met in Murfreesboro and immediately didn’t like eachother. At a party in 2009 they had some whiskeys and became friends and started dicking around on guitar, writing their first song, a song about going down on your best friend, now lost to the sands of time. Despite a lukewarm reception at Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe, they have been sitting on eachother’s faces ever since, showing eachother their bruises and generally doing whatever they want when it works out that way." Songs on the inside NSFW if you can't tell. [more inside]

Everytime I Try To Tell You, The Words Just Come Out Wrong...

In the early 70's explosion of singer-songwriters, one great one's career was tragically cut short, just over 30 years ago. His lyricism, humor, unpretentious manner, and ear for a hook are sadly missed and rarely remebered these days. The recent release of archival material might help revive interest.

Harvey Sid Fisher

Harvey Sid Fisher is so much more than a Moment of Zen. Though best known for his astrology songs, which frequently appeared on The Daily Show back in its Craig Kilborn days, he also sings about golf, the battle of the sexes, and why teens shouldn't smoke. Oh, and he's a model, too.
