Lolla #21: Mimicking Birds

May 3, 2010

Sounds like: Iron and Wine. Bon Iver.  [+/- 0.  I am neutral on the subject of soft guitar and emotions.  They are mimicking some real, real quiet birds, though.]

You can listen to them at: http://www.myspace.com/mimickingbirds

Sample Lyric: “All we are is burning stars / shiny brightly making sure you don’t fall too far / i’ll keep an eye on you if you keep one on me/ something something”

I would rather see this band than: Fall asleep. This is soft, but the instrumentation and the guy’s voice, sometimes background vocals, are juuuust ambitious enough to keep it from being sleepy.    I can support that.  Not top of my list, but if they were placed after, say, Foxy Shazam, and I needed to rest, this would be a good way to do it.
