Bowerbirds

The Bowerbirds 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. The roots of the Bowerbirds lie in the Raleigh, NC, indie rock trio Ticonderoga, who were led by singer and guitarist Phil Moore. During the recording of the trio's second album, 2005's The Heilig Levine LP, Moore took a job tracking birds for the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, which involved living in a cabin in the Carolina woods, far from civilization. Moore's girlfriend, a visual artist named Beth Tacular (born Beth Salmon) joined him in the cabin to work on her painting; at night, Moore began writing songs influenced by the couple's rustic, natural surroundings. When Ticonderoga split up on tour supporting their second album, Moore and Tacular started their own band, the Bowerbirds, with Tacular teaching herself how to play the accordion and acquiring a marching band-style bass drum to keep rudimentary time. In this stripped-down incarnation, the Bowerbirds recorded a six-song EP, Danger at Sea, in 2006. Drafting producer and multi-instrumentalist Mark Paulson to flesh out the duo's sound, the Bowerbirds released their debut full-length, Hymns for a Dark Horse, on the new indie label Burly Time Records in 2007. The band's sophomore outing, Upper Air, arrived in 2009, followed by Clearing in 2012. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi

man, i dunno. maybe a little too 'death metal' for me. that accordion...
GOIN to VILLAS VILLAH
i can really see the black metal and drone influences. They kind of remind of the death metal outfits the shins and wilco.
just saw the same thing. didn't think doom metal when I hear bowerbirds
The bio seems to refer to a different band entirely...? As far as I can tell Horseback is *not* Bowerbirds - perhaps pandora could edit this bio?
Reminds me of beirut. ahh so very, very good.

Perfect.
Vivid--> Ticondergoa- - > Bowerbirds , Phil Moore has such an inviting voice and authenticity that I never get tired of it. Some of the best song writing out there.

"In Our Talons" must be Pandora's favor-ite song.
so good. phil moore is an unbelievably talented musician and vocalist, and Ticonderoga was a jewel while remaining virtually unknown. Both Ticonderoga albums are essential listening.
