End Recommends: Hibou

September 14, 2015

One of my favorite Seattle bands right now is Hibou! Pronounced ee-boo. This is how Consequence of Sound describes him: "Hibou exists somewhere between the expansiveness of a summer day and the confines of bedroom. As the band’s sole member, Peter Michel aims to capture the transcendental beauty of a Seattle summer – a rare and beautiful thing in itself." Sounds amazing, right? Hibou is putting out his debut record on September 18th with Barsuk Records, but you can stream the album online right now. If you like what you hear, go see Peter live at Sonic Boom in Ballard on 9/18 or at Frolik Kitchen + Cocktails on 9/22! Both events are totally free and judging from his Bumbershoot performance, you do not want to miss the next time this dude plays live. He also has great taste in music! Peter joined us on Locals Only last night and picked out some tunes from Kairos, Deep Sea Diver, Bod, and The Fruit Bats! Plus he loves Chastity Belt and is going on tour with El Vy. See? Hibou is awesome. Check him out!
