The Homeless and the Hummingbirds

March 28, 2008


So, I found this really interesting band by the name of “Alaska in Winter“. Although he had help from the likes of Zach Condon (Beirut) and Heather Trost (A Hawk and a Hacksaw), this album was actualized almost entirely by Albuquerque, New Mexico resident Brandon Bethancourt .
He says (about it’s creation) on his Myspace page…
This whole thing started when I spent an isolated winter recording music on a laptop in a tiny cabin out in the middle of nowhere Alaska.”

This album is truly unique in it’s often orchestral and ambient sound, while the soothing melodies on many of the tracks are simply beautiful. The album came out in the UK in 2007 and was only just released in North America in March of ’08. This song is called “The Homeless and the Hummingbirds” from the album “Dance Party in the Balkans“.

Have a listen.
