ike all good folk-influenced music, Bird has crafted an album which places great importance on the lyrics. What is more unusual is that his tales veer towards the nonsensical, yet still compete for recognition with the rich musical backdrop.
This is experimental folk-pop, if such a thing exists. It's possible that this genre could be the noble beast of which Bird speaks, as there is a certain dignity in his assonantic poetry and the way it mixes with his warm acoustics. However, there is equally a strong sense of beauty to compliment this figurative, noble beast. The violins embrace the often-plucked rhythms, the handclap-resembling percussion partners the touch of Morricone effortlessly, which drifts across `Masterswarm'.
Fitz & Dizzyspells' hints at The Shins andNonmenclature' confirms it. `Not A Robot, But A Ghost' even recalls a lo-fi Radiohead, circa Amnesiac. These are complex tracks with distorted pop at their charming heart. They envelop the listener with comfortable warmth, but may be too comfortable, allowing the experience to bypass the indifferent listener unaffected. Bird's lush beast is a beauty
