Today we proudly present The Bird EP, available for free from Bandcamp, Last FM, and later today Soundcloud as well.
Birthed from a series of home recording sessions over late Winter / early Spring 2011, these songs were inspired by some field recordings I made in Berlin, plus hand crafted bird callers purchased in Budapest, Barcelona and Southend-on-Sea. The sessions were mainly attempts at recording guitar improvisations or instantly composing a song and then working around the initial idea. The lyrics for 'Feed the birds' came from a single line in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's novel Autumn of the Patriarch, where the act of hand feeding song birds honey to allow them to sing all day.
Hope you all enjoy, please pass it on.
