Zee Avi GHOSTBIRD (Vinyl)
For Malaysian singer/songwriter Zee Avi 'Swell Window' is the gorgeous track that started the journey and also the opening track of her second album 'Ghostbird. 'It's a song about movement', she says 'and for me. a new direction and a new voice came and slayed' In her two years since her self-titled debut was joint-released on Jack Johnson's Brushfire Records and Ian Montone's Label, Avi's very free spirit has wandered from major music festivals (SXSW, Outside Lands, Bonaroo) to huge tours (Lilith Fair) back to her homeland of Sarawak, Borneo Island, where she recently picked up an International Youth Icon award. For a little perspective, just four years ago, Avi was a former art student in Kuala Lumpur who posted a song on YouTube to catch up with a friend and was quite surprised to find herself the toast of the Internet when thousands of strangers discovered her effortlessly stunning voice. Literal overnight success can easily poison young minds, but Avi is no ordinary mind- while critics were comparing her chilled-out jazzy ukulele-based songs to Billie Holiday and Cat Power she was continuing to make visual art and remaining her buoyant, whimsical self.. 'I'm 25 going on 12 and a half on a good day;, she laughs, flipping through a notebook filled with colorful drawings and lengthy notes. Avi started writing Ghostbird in her Brooklyn kitchen last summer, but followed the wind to the balmy waters of the Florida Everglades where she found endless musings. 'with absolute silence and calmness'. In March she took her first batch of tunes to Johnson's solar powered Plastic Plant studios and got to down to business with producer Mario Caldato Jr. best known for his work with the Beastie Boys and beloved Brazilian artists like Bebel Gilberto. It only took two weeks for them to lay down the 11 tracks on Ghostbird (it means 'Burning Hantu' which means owl in Avi's native language), including the closing number on the album 'Stay In The Clouds' a new addition that was written on the last day of recording.
