MP3: In The Yard by Bowerbirds
I was hesitant to drop another Bowerbirds bomb on you all so soon, but this song is just too good not to share. Again, we see the North Carolinans building on their tried and trued folk ways with expanded instrumentation and more complex harmonies. Soft guitar and piano patiently open up to a crunchified guitar lick which ultimately leads to a chorus of birdlike coos, giving the band’s namesake a run for its money. Please do grab the song below, which the band is graciously giving away for free.
