to find music to fall in love with is a challenge.
personally, its ideal to look for the qualities of sincerity and feeling in sound.  after going to live shows and watching quite a few bands play, the one thing that always seems to cross my mind is that there are so many musicians out there.  so many ordinary people going for the dream to be a rock n’ roll star and a very rare few that still maintain the beauty of why anyone should listen to them at all. 

the postmarks share that, and its obvious throughout each and every one of their songs. from miami, this trio provides a calming notion of daydreams and bright sunlight mixed together within the colorful image of turquoise blue oceans.   their self-titled debut album showcases soft female vocals layered inside string arrangements, 60s french pop and light shades of bossa nova in its finest.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
