you the swimmer, and i, a bird in the sky

Esme Patterson‘s soul seems to be made of a dark and shiny substance that I understand. This video captures it perfectly, amid all the glittery darting fish. Gorgeous.

api_coverEsme is one of Denver’s finest treasures. Her first solo record (Paper Bird also keeps her busy) is out now: All Princes, I (through the Greater Than Collective).

This video was made at the Seattle Aquarium with Isaac Ravishankara, who I first met when he taped that one Lumineers house show.

  • Really lovely and deep. Brings the sad strange Tom Waits nugget “Fish & Bird” to mind. Thanks for this one!

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
