One eskimO: added to Ryan’s playlist

I’ve mentioned before that Ryan prefers music with a beat… not so much the lullabies and Raffi (yet). We have a playlist on iTunes just for him… that’ll be for another post. But I wanted to let you know about a new band I just found out about–and we’re adding some of their songs to Ryan’s list.

One eskimO is a critically-acclaimed English band fronted by singer-songwriter Kristian Leontiou and includes musicians Pete Rinaldi (guitar), Jamie Sefton (bass, horns) and Adam Falkner (drums). Some of you have probably heard their #1 hit song Kandi–I LOVE it! Their debut self-titled album is now in stores AND they’re currently on tour (with Michael Franti)–here are their tour dates.

The music has been described as “catchy, ambient pop.” I don’t know if I’d consider it pop music though… not in the traditional sense of the word. The singer puts the band in the genre of “ambient electro-acoustic”–all drums are played on a wooden drum box and they have an acoustic fretless bass. Whatever you want to call it, the music is great.

My husband is VERY picky when it comes to music. I was playing this CD and after 2 songs he said, “What is this? It’s awesome.” So there ya go, it passed the test! It’s very chill… it’s hard to describe, you just have to listen!

Find One eskimO on facebook and you tube. Buy their debut album on itunes for $11.99 and… download the song “Astronauts” for FREE.

Check out their video for the song “Kandi”–you won’t be disappointed! <3
