NPR has a good ear for music – or so they make it seem. Anyways, the Guillemots have been making a good name for themselves with their debut album From The Cliffs as well as opening for Rufus Wainwright in 2005.
To make a long story short, the Guillemots have officially been NPR-fied as of a month ago and pleased their listeners with a short set of music. I personally enjoyed the fact that all of their band members are from different parts of the world. It’s almost like the United Nations has their own personal band.

They also gave NPR a bonus song The Chosen One (even though it’s on it their debut CD) that reminds me a lot of Damien Rice. Maybe it’s their similar heritage?
