3rd Annual Arrested Development Marathon


Well folks, you’ve asked and we have answered. By popular demand, Birch Coffee will be holding its third annual (a tradition at this point) Arrested Development New Year’s Day marathon.

If you stayed out a bit too late on Saturday night and are just rolling out of bed on Sunday morning, boy do we have your day set. At 9 am on January 1st, we are starting a two-day Arrested Development Marathon that will run from 9am to 9pm Sunday and then kick back up on Monday the 2nd at 9 am.

Stay for an episode, stay for ten, or stay for all 53. It is going to be hilarious.

Koo, koo, ke cha.

Birch’s Music Monday

The weather in New York is finally getting cold – and staying that way.  Fortunately this week’s Music Monday is featuring some awesome new tracks and videos to keep you toasty warm. (Of course a cup of Birch’s hot coffee wouldn’t hurt either)

Guided By Voices releases “One, Two, Three, Four” a slow tune reminiscent of a 60′s psych groove from their latest EP “Doughnut For A Snowman” available now

check out My Morning Jacket singing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” at a recent BBC  6 Music session…

…feel like  a member of Das Racist for a moment while watching their latest video “Brand New Dance” featuring the band grooving on stage, performing some backstage shenanigans, and getting up close and personal with the camera.

Birch’s Music Monday

Welcome back to another edition of Music Monday!  This week we have a fantastic batch of new music that we are loving!

Since we are avid Jónsi lovers, we were so happy to take a listen to the new album, We Bought a Zoo. Yes, this is the soundtrack to the upcoming christmas movie with Matt Damon.

“Cloudbursting” is a playful new track from the Brooklyn based band, Wild Arrows.  Take a listen and make sure to get tickets to see them live, they are currently playing shows in the New York Area…

…and Shabazz Palaces new video for “Black Up” is a must see!
