Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

ICEBIRD

The Abandoned Lullaby

2011-10-17

Philadelphia musicians RJD2 and Aaron Livingston have teamed up to become the duo Icebird. Sticking strictly to the method of collaborating as one producer (RJD2) and one singer (Aaron Livingston), they have made a slick neo-soul record. Occasional musical surprises occur here and there on “The Abandoned Lullaby” such as the kit drums on “I’m Green” and the xylophone on “King Tut”; but when they aren’t trying to rock out (like they do on “Gun For Hire”), they remind me just a little bit of Jamiroqui.
