Bowerbirds to play Lincoln Hall
The sound on Bowerbirds‘ new album, The Clearing, is bigger than a lot of the trio’s previous stuff. Listen to the song Tuck the Darkness In, for example. The song begins quietly but then builds to a strong finish that ends with electric guitar and drums. That’s not to say the songs on The Clearing are altogether different. The album follows a path set out by the band’s previous releases, folky, dreamy songs that also feature piano, violin, accordion and the old, trusty vibraphone. There’s an interesting backstory about the band’s challenges and personal lives (members Phil Moore and Beth Tacular are romantically involved). I think the band’s music will appeal most to fans of Bon Iver, Megafaun and Andrew Bird.
Bowerbirds plays Lincoln Hall Thursday.
