New to the NYC scene: Blair plays CMJ with Beach Fossils

New to the NYC scene: Blair plays CMJ with Beach Fossils

Blair is an interesting singer songwriter that recently moved to Brooklyn from the LA area - although she's originally from the south. Her songs are more than "just" folk songs, there's a dreamy quality to them that recalls the sound of mid 90s female fronted bands like Blake Babies and Belly, but also an often quirky experimental edge (did we ever tell you that we LOVE quirky?) The overall atmosphere of the tunes is rather soft, which suits Blair's warm, expressive voice, but the electronic and percussive arrangements add a playful touch to the tracks that makes them more interesting and enjoyable. This lady is gathering some buzz and this is not the only reason why you should check out her music. She has a bunch of very interesting CMJ shows planned, with Beach Fossils at The Rock Shop on 10.20 and Francis and the Lights at Mercury on 10.22.
