Favorite Things: Casey of Ohbijou

30 Jan

ohbijouI am very, very excited about this.  Casey Mecija [second from the left], lead singer, guitarist and songwriter for the phenomenal band Ohbijou, has graciously contributed her list of favorite things to the site.  If you are unfamiliar with Ohbijou then I suggest you remedy that quickly and listen to their independently released “Swift Feet For Troubling Times”.  Give special attention to their song “The Woods” as it is one of the single best recordings I have ever heard.  After that lofty intro, here, without further ado, are Casey’s favorites:

book – Currently: Autobiography of Red by Anne Carson
movie – Central Station
fictional character – Max Fischer, Margot Tenebaum
color –  Anything in the shades of Autumn
animal – Red Labrador, one in particular named Appleby.
food – Spaghetti
phobia – mold
word – plume
place – Santa Cruz, Paris France, Philidelphia,
article of clothing – Cardigan
musical term – Crescendo
childhood toy – Walkie Talkie
quote – Currently: “Geryon bent his neck over to one side, like a poppy that spoils its delicate shapes, shedding its petals all at once.”

Ohbijou are preparing to release their second album, Beacons, in April so keep an eye out.
