Upper Air Upper Air CD (2009) Definitive Album
CD $16.09 Buy It  Details
Vinyl Record $18.89 Buy It  Details
Bowerbirds discography UPPER AIR, the Bowerbirds' second release, finds the band continuing in the vein of their first effort; this is rustic, cerebral, ramshackle music. One could call it "beard rock"--it's the kind of backwoods, wild-poet-of-the-mountain sound that nods to Bon Iver, Bonny Prince Billy, and Iron & Wine. What makes the Bowerbirds just a touch different lies in how manipulative (in a good way) their songs can be. "House of Diamonds," with its stormy percussion and piano chords, and blocky guitar riffs, is simply electrifying. But the Bowerbirds really are at their best when they call up the quietly fiery side of their sound. "Ghost Life"'s wordless chorus (a series of triumphant "ohs") shouldn't be as convincingly uplifting as it is; it's a testament to the Bowerbirds' creative chemistry and pop sensibilities that it works as well as it does. UPPER AIR only runs into trouble when the Bowerbirds get a little too introspective; some of the slow, meandering tracks here tend to get muddily dirge-like ("Chimes"). But this is a small issue in the wake of all the twisting, strangehearted stuff this disc has to offer. Personnel: Ivan Howard (vocals); Wesley Phillips (upright bass); Beth Tacular, Phil Moore , Mark Paulson .
Clearing Clearing CD (2012)

Bowerbirds songs The Clearing, North Carolina's Bowerbirds' third album, moves the band one broad step away from the rough-edged gothic ruralisms that characterized their first two full-lengths. The band and mood of the arrangements are the same -- an acoustic-leaning trio, strings -- but there is a far glossier edge to the proceedings. Once associated with the vague edge of the freak folk revival of the early- to mid-2000s, The Clearing places Bowerbirds squarely in a more considered place. On "Stich the Hem," hard hand percussion tapes and snare hits propel singer Philip Moore to a full-on indie rock explosion that blossoms into a bed of Beth Tacular's layered vocals while string swells gather in silvery pools ...

Bowerbirds CD discography The Bowerbirds are the duo of singer/guitarist Phil Moore and accordionist/drummer Beth Tacular. (Since the original self-released version of this debut album in 2007, they've added multi-instrumentalist Mark Paulson as well.) Moore and Tacular wrote the songs on this haunting, pastoral album while living in a remote cabin in a national forest, and the solitude and beauty of their surroundings come through in Moore's nature-themed metaphors and the simple acoustic beauty of the sparse arrangements. Highlights include "In Our Talons" and the epic "Olive Hearts." This 2008 reissue adds two new songs. Personnel: Phil Moore Four (vocals, guitar); Mark Paulson (vocals, violin, piano, drums); Bradley Cook (upright bass). Author: John Darnielle.

Bowerbirds Biography

Bowerbirds albums The Artist sit on the dividing line between the freak folk contingent led by Devendra Banhart and Joanna Newsom and the more straightforward sunshine pop of Lavender Diamond. For all the self-conscious quirkiness of their lineup and instrumentation, there's an unfeigned positivity to their music that's refreshingly direct. They recorded a six-song EP, Danger at Sea, in 2006. Drafting producer and multi-instrumentalist Mark Paulson to flesh out their sound, the Artist released their debut full-length, Hymns for a Dark Horse, on Burly Time in 2007. ~ Stewart Mason
