Music for Dead Birds. What a cheery moniker. They've a 3" CD out on that Rusted Rail, one of those hand assembled jobs. I'd like to assemble some sleeves for them. They look like the greetings cards I make for folk. These folks squeeze 8 songs onto this tiny disclet and name it "And Then It Rained For Seven Days" As i'm off to Scotland on Saturday I'm hoping that isn't too prophetic. The first tunelet sounds like early 90's NY style lo-fi, shouty, repetitive & noisy, stop start stuff. Hurts my ears. 'What did you expect' recalls some of Sebadoh's earlier experiments in distorted confessional pop, 'The Sex' is a tender folkish chestbeater with a hearty vocal chant, some really emotive guitar picking and a stunted primitive drum line. It gets folkier on the the sing-song 'To Grow Up Wet', the clickety dub laced snare cracks on the eerie & quite wonderful 'Pill, Oh' are a fine backdrop to the hazy boy/girl vocals and a shambling, meandering acoustic guitar. Fans of early Hood will REALLY like this one, it's boss. There's more songs but I never tell you about them all. You'd have nothing to be surprised by. Worth it for 'Pill, Oh' alone. Oh yes. FREE BADGE AVAILABLE TOO WOO-HOO!
