Bowerbirds

Societies sometimes sing their best songs for centuries. Consider that antediluvian American lament "Goodbye, Old Paint," or the worn murder ballads of the Appalachians, which still send shivers down spines and inspire new renditions, variations and song cycles. Ancient as they may be, these tunes still resonate emotionally, echoing some feeling each of us has likely felt.

Stream and Download New Bowerbirds Track!

Here’s a wonderful treat to brighten up your Monday. The Bowerbirds share “In the Yard,” the lovely second track from their forthcoming album, The Clearing on Pitchfork this morning. Set for release on March 6th, The Clearing has received an abundance of early praise. Independent Weekly, says “without doubt their best work yet, taking the kind of special songs they’ve always written to dizzying, redemptive new places. Keenly composed, adventurously arranged and arrogantly executed, it’s an album that will adjust expectations of and for the Bowerbirds.” You can stream and download “In the Yard” below.

The band weaves its way through songs from the recently released Upper Air, and its Dead Oceans debut. Read (au Francais) about the performance HERE. And catch the video HERE.
