Flying “Anywhere The Wind Blows” w/ Big Eagle

Here is a sweet and soulful modern country song that had me catching my breath this morning. Big, warm female harmonies, and a prominent electric piano form the Greek Chorus to this tale of bad love. Big Eagle singer Robyn Miller is all kinds of beautiful, and her voice carries the history of her musical odyssey. From Humboldt county roots, through indie-rock glory with The Peels, and all the requisite highs and lows of the Kafkaesque music business, Miller emerges with all her limbs intact, and a transcendent new record. This is all grow’d up. Check it out.

Peeling Out Again With The Peels

I love this woman’s voice so much it makes me do crunches and take my vitamins. She rocks mieces to pieces. I just recently was reminded of The Peels, when I read Superfan’s post, of Robyn Miller’s new record under the name of Big Eagle. This only child epic is a fine taste of what Miller and her four piece band of rockerz sounded like. So much indie new wave punky anger bliss. From their eponymous debut CD. Water, I need water.
