Summer Heart (2010) is the debut album of Blackbird Blackbird, which is backed by San Francisco's Mikey Maramag. Brought to popular attention through its songs, "Pure" and "Hawaii", this modern chillwave/dreamwave album is strongly entwined with a nostalgic sense of electronic music's history.

The majority of Blackbird Blackbird's songs can be characterized as modern chillwave and ambient trance, as represented in songs like "Pure" and "Avalanche". Heavy reverb; various recording samples (i.e. beach waves in "Summer Heart" and wrapper crunching in "Heartbeat"); dreamy, indie-sounding vocals; rich, underlying bass lines; as well as hazy drumbeats are all tightly woven within a complex mesh of rhythms and melodies. In most songs, the bass and synth beats drive the vocals, just as is characteristic of electronic music artist, Cujo's, work. All of these elements in conjunction with Blackbird Blackbird's full use of aural sound space, as evident through substantial panning and layering, take the listener on a journey to some far, far away heavenly dream place. In this way, Summer Heart also provides for an acousmatic music experience.

Take a further look and this hazy-pop, chillwave, glo-fi, "whatever-other-related- modern-genre-you-can-think-of" band has its roots deep in to that of electronic music's history. First, the mix of natural samples with pure electronic sounds is similar to the early elektronische musik works of Stockhausen (i.e. "Gesang der Junglinge"), especially with the use of playground/kid chatter samples in "Let's Move on Together". Second, the foreground sound in "Pure" seems to be made of a harp sample layered upon itself over and over again, in a similar fashion to Xenakis's use of granular synthesis in his song, "Concret pH".

this is an absolute masterpiece and the opening salvo from a musician at the start of what will surely become a very fulfilling career. Blackbird Blackbird has crafted an album that rises to such incredible emotional peaks on the basis of music alone. it is by turns dreamy, joyful, melancholy, melodic, lush, understated, bold, epic and intimate. it must be heard to be believed.

The music is great. I especially love the song Hawaii, it makes me drift off into another world. I highly recommend this cd. I actually got to see Blackbird Blackbird live in Santa Cruz a while back. If you're in the area, I recommend you check BlackBird BlackBird out.
