As posted on by Catbirdseat, The Sea & The Gulls is a project where, once a week, two artist/musicians get together and write songs, record them, and post them on their Web site.
While these recordings are casual and lo-fi, generally opening up with conversation and the sounds of people situating themselves to perform, the songs themselves – especially “Seagulls,” with its infectious melody and bossa nova chords – are often fantastic. You’ll have to download all of them and see which ones you like, but here are a pair of my favorites. The cute part is that all the songs are about things that fly. Like gulls, natch.
