Blackbird Blackbird

Dreamy and layered experimental electro-pop with soul sensibilities, Blackbird Blackbird — the project of Los Angeles-based and Hawaii-native Mikey Maramag — has the sort of melancholy drive that can be, as Brian Eno said about ambient music: “actively listened to with attention or as easily ignored, depending on the choice of the listener.” Releasing about a record a year, Blackbird Blackbird has been a prolific project, exercising a variety of synth-soaked ideas that have elements of sunny ’60s California pop and the strange structures of indie contemporaries like Washed Out.
