Blue Sky Traffic definitely gets around. The band recorded its first full-length album, A Beautiful Girl, in Nashville and Maryland. It also plays live with local hip-hop group the Pham.

"It's kind of an album that's like the best of all of our older stuff for the last three years," Kalk said. "A lot of times the songs started to mean other things because of where we were."
