The fourth album from the bird and the bee, Recreational Love, came to life over a half-decade of songwriting and recording. “We didn’t mean to take so long but life ended up getting in the way, in a great way,” says vocalist Inara George, who formed the Los Angeles-based duo with multi-instrumentalist Greg Kurstin in 2005. In the midst of pursuing other projects — George also sings in the indie-folk supergroup the Living Sisters, Kurstin’s a Grammy Award-nominated producer who’s recently worked with Sia, Lykke Li, and Charli XCX — the two met most Friday mornings at Kurstin’s studio to dream up their latest batch of finely textured retro-pop. With a hint of R&B adding some warm grooves this time around, Recreational Lovecaptures the easy intimacy of their collaboration and lets listeners slip into the band’s own charmed and secret world.


Alex Lilly (Obi Best, Touché, Zero Dezire and The Living Sisters) wants to help you dance through your existential crisis. You may have spotted the Los Angeles-based songwriter/producer/mentalist touring in Beck’s band or on the road with the Bird and the Bee and Lorde. Now she’s synthesizing her musical powers into 2% Milk (2019), her debut full-length album.


Miss Samantha Sidley is a queer jazz singer & interpreter from Los Angeles, California. Mid-2019 will see the release of Miss Samantha Sidley’s long-awaited debut record, a collection of songs by Alex Lilly, Barbara Gruska and Inara George – and some classics – celebrating love, sex, feminine power, and the wonders and perils of the human spirit. With longtime collaborators, musical director and multi-instrumentalist Dan Reckard and trombonist Vikram Devasthali – and other surprise guests.
