We are grateful to Baybs for bringing us this summery tune just at the the peak of that I-don’t-want-summer-to-be-over-yet feeling. Baybs, the duo of Craig Jacobs and Melissa Russi, just appeared on the scene and busted out some tunes on Honey House Records (recorded over at Light Rail Studios). Those Honey House folks sure know how to pick ‘em. “You’re the Only One” is a happy, folk pop tune with a Magnetic Fields meets Tennis vibe. There’s surfy guitars, the lyrics are poetic and charming, and mm a refreshingly solid bridge. Any song that ends in “Purr” gets a couple extra points as well.
Baybs is playing this Saturday August 10th at Amnesia to celebrate the release of their first two singles. Playing with them will be our beloved Zelma Stone (remember this?) and Casi Asmodea. Stay tuned for their EP this fall and more on the horizon.
