Just Sittin' Here Ya Know.. Chillin...

Seems like with Blog On the Motor Way and the burgeoning empire that is Upsidedown Stupid Hat everyone has forgot about 'lil old OG TapeClub. Well - its a slow Friday and i haven't!
I heard this song for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It's from Lady and Bird who are Bardi Johannsson from Iceland and Keren Ann who had her own little thing going on. Especially w/ her French/Israeli who's in love with New York vibe. I don't know much musically about Johannsson but his bio says he was the producer of Iceland's first erotic television program. Lovely! This album was released in America about 2 months ago on Keren's own label Yellow Tangerine. It includes a cover of Suicide is Painless (aka the theme from MASH) but I think this track is the true gem. I've seen the album described as a childrens story for grown ups and that's what this track sounds like. It's cute, precious and a little sad.
