MUSIC: Ollie Byrd

Ollie Byrd is an interesting and totally random myspace music find by Macktronic. More appropriately, he found me and I actually liked his stuff (which is contrary to the normal trend). This Brooklyn musician/band has music that plays like a more urgent version of Cody ChestnuTT's album that came out a couple years ago..... unpolished, noisy, and excellent. Not alot of info on his myspace page and not alot of blogger noise out there, but I imagine this won't last for too long. Take a listen.
