Strange Bloom is hands down my favorite album of 2012, so far. It was made by my bandmate, Alice Lin, and her friend, concert violinist Michi Wiancko. Together they are called Alice & Michi. Their LP reminds me a little of Coco Rosie, Bjork, and Stereolab. It is the perfect soundtrack for an enchanted jungle.
This. Freaking. Inspires. Me. You don’t need stuff to make art. You don’t need an expensive education or even a conventional skill set. All you need is a drive to create, and you will turn the garbage around you into something beautiful.
