yeah its got just enough bite for me. Lots of things going on in their music that keep me interested. I've been listening to all their albums over and over lately.

and Hammer of Heaven is very :bammer: worthy.

Nothing. I've got a folder open with hundreds of gigabytes worth of music, and I just keep scrolling. I need some new blood.

I quite enjoy Tame Impala. I haven't tried The Mynabirds because they kinda scare me.

Kevin Davis could do it much better than I ever could.

They only have two albums and they're both worth checking out. Very different beasts.

In a word, I would describe The Mynabirds' sound as gorgeous.

The two albums are definitely very different, to the point that's it's difficult to come up with a description that applies to the band in general. The first one is a loose, Memphis soul-type thing that Matthew Perpetua at Pitchfork did a nice job summarizing:

Quote:
The material recalls artists such as Dusty Springfield, Laura Nyro, and Linda Rondstadt, but the sound and style come closer to more recent touchstones-- Jenny Lewis' best moments on her own and with Rilo Kiley; Cat Power circa The Greatest and Jukebox; Fiona Apple's collaborations with Jon Brion.


I'd quibble with the Fiona Apple comparison but the rest of it is spot-on. It's a beautiful, natural-sounding album with the spotlight squarely on Laura Burhenn's dusky, soulful voice. This is the first of the two albums I heard and it instantly made me want to get the second one.

The second album is a kind of meticulous, highly mechanized, borderline industrial pop--it's much darker, with more focus on rhythm and melody than on the voice itself. It's a little jarring after the relative straightforwardness of the first record, but it's a bold sidestep, and still pretty easily digestible in the grand scheme. I go back and forth on which one I prefer, but I think I'd give the second album the creative edge. It's a tremendous piece of work--wonderful songwriting and arranging.

You can probably get through both albums in just over an hour. They're worth the time.
