a2761001006_16There are moments that define musical history. The first time the Beatles performed on the Ed Sullivan Show. Maybe the first time you were in a car and heard Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” on the radio. Today, we celebrate another one of those moments with the premiere of Chibi Kodama‘s “Boredinary”.

Okay, so it might not be quite the same musical historical significance, but it is an awesome video and a truly unique sound in the world of Kindie. We like to call Chibi Kodama’s music #ShoegazerKindie as an homage to the British shoegazer style of bands like Lush, Catherine Wheel, Cocteau Twins, etc from the late 80s and early 90s that featured a mix of driving “wall of sound” guitars with multi-layered ethereal voices.  With a distortion derecho, head bopping rhythm, clever wordplay, and the whole family singing along, Chibi Kodama’s “Boredinary” is the AWESOME lead single from their new album “Stardust” which releases May 27th. Enjoy!
