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.

BOWERBIRDS Prep New LP, UPPER AIR, For July Release

We are pleased to announce the first details of BOWERBIRDS second long player, Upper Air, which will be available on July 7th (UK Release: July 6). The band is embarking on tours of both the US and Europe prior to the album’s release, performing new material for fans on both sides of the pond.

Upper Air is the product of months spent away from nature and away from home, touring endlessly with the likes of Bon Iver, Phosphorescent and John Vanderslice and on their own, on both sides of the Atlantic. The fodder for songwriting has changed, and so have the songs. Upper Air moves away from the singular sound and sentiment; each and every song on Upper Air is a journal entry that stands on its own, each a singular, beautiful piece. The arrangements are subtle: acoustic guitars, organ, piano, autoharp, violin, percussion, upright bass and more are used throughout the recording. Usually though, it is just a few of these instruments delicately supporting Moore’s voice, the anchor of every song. Everyone struggles when they try to describe this music, including us, but we’ll try: it has the spirit of Richard and Linda Thompson, the currency of Devendra Banhart, the addictively sweet melodicism of Iron & Wine, but it churns with an underlying energy closer to a Beirut or something farther out, more raw, more wild.
