I discovered this band last week sometime, from someone's blog or something. I don't remember.
The Paper Kites have a light, folksy sound with good harmonies. I am always a fan of good harmonies. And they're all fairly attractive, don't you think?
Today we have Howard Shore, known for composing the music in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy. He's done the music for many other movies, one of the more important being his work on the 90's film, That Thing You Do. Yeah, guys. Howard Shore is big time.
Today we have Joe Hisaishi, known for composing the music in the brilliant movie Howl's Moving Castle (also a book - check it out at your local library!). He also composed the music for many other Hayao Miyazaki films.
