DOWNLOAD: Bowerbirds - In Our Talons (MP3)
Tonight's Rosebuds/Ladybug Transistor show (May 24) just got more interesting - actually it was already that interesting, but I just realized it was more interesting. The reason = the opener = BOWERBIRDS. After a tip from HOAS, I meant to check them out at Sidewalk Cafe back in October, but then forgot. Right before that The Mountain Goats' John Darnielle called them, "The Best Band You Haven't Heard Yet".
And YES, like pretty much any band putting out an album on any sort of label, they have a publicist now, and yes - blog love is quickly picking up steam. And yes they sound a little bit like Devendra Banhart. And yes I forgot what I'm even talking about. Their album is streaming on their MySpace.
They go on first at Bowery tonight (May 24). Get there early. All tour dates below....
