This is the second of two mini 12" EP's from Wildbirds & Peacedrums. The first passed me by but this one is all up in my face so i'll get on and tell you something about it. Wildbirds...specialise in high concept pop music much like Sade, Bjork, Kate Bush and those types so they've got a great front lady thing going on and they enlist the help of all sorts of producers and engineers (in this case the Ben Frost the golden manchild) to create vast musical landscapes elaborating on whatever it is that's on their mind at the time. 'Iris' seems to focus it's attention on the steel drum which is probably up there in my top five instruments of all time (vibraphone, electric guitar, Korg MS-20, steel drum and the Omnichord...just incase you were interested). So, these tracks are minimalist beat and steel drum affairs with a warm, inventive vocal delivery driving them home. It's pretty effective stuff and probably the most interesting of the Wildbirds stuff i recall hearing. Kinda reminds me of the new High Places stuff or perhaps Pit Er Pat....in a way.
