Release of the Week: Birdmonster - From the Mountain to the Sea

Birdmonster - From the Mountian to the Sea
This weeks release came to me a few weeks ago via Sinkweeds. Due to a leak the album has been out digitally for a couple of weeks but official hits stores today.

San Fransisco kind of has this little scene, maybe you have heard of The Morning Benders, The Dodos or if your in deep the Mumblers. Anyway, this is another great band to add to that list. I enjoy the way these guys mesh quick acoustic rhythms with stark electric guitar riffs in a sort of an Okkervil River style. I can't stop thinking of Bob Dylan as I follow the rhyming patters and lyric use. The album flows from fast to slow song very nicely and is covered with great songs and great musicianship.

Birdmonster will be at the Yacca Tap Room on Oct 13th which would be an amazing place to see these guys! So mark your calendar.
