Another new one to me. The cover looks an awful lot like an old Piano Magic sleeve. In fact musically it's not a million miles away from Piano Magic. 'An Index of Birds' is a post rock album which wears it influences on its sleeve. Part post rock, part slowcore, part shoegaze think of bands like Hood, Mogwai, Piano Magic and you're somewhere on the way to sussing out what's on offer here. It's very competently done though I will say and if you're into those bands and that sound I can't see any reason why you won't like this. There's lots of lovely orchestration carefully positioned which add an extra dimension to the sound... making it richer and fuller. The more I listen to the album the more I think this band have something about them. It's done with style and panache and for what is essentially an over saturated genre this is far from superfluous. It's a very varied album with the songs dipping from instrumentals, to songs with vocals, slower more broodings tunes and then more energetic ones. It's all over the shop and it's a shop you'll want to visit!
