The Song of Blackbird EP, the musical companion to Quail: The Song of Blackbird EP, Michael Jonathan (of Eros Inc.)'s minicomic. I'll admit to not being the most musically inclined person (Have I mentioned I used to be a radio DJ?), and I didn't expect to like Quail half as I did. I could almost imagine the music Quail plays in her epic bardic battle.
As it turns out, though, I don't have to. Jonathan has released a 5-track musical EP companion to Quail. It's a lovely set of folk-inspired songs ("Rope" is especially haunting), but also just a cool multimedia experience. I've always appreciated how other media creep into Jonathan's comic work (Eros Inc. has a clear television feel to it), and it's nice to see him pull in different media so explicitly with a single work.
You can download the EP for $5, grab Quail and the EP for $10, or a full package of Quail comics, songs, sketches, and a print for $17. It's well worth checking out.
