Being Our Sunday Affairs' final album, the solemn sounds that inhabit this record are more than fitting-they're perfect. Experimenting with a spaced out song writing style, OSA narrates an apocalyptic tale starring everyone's new favorite protagonist, Cave.
A friend once told me, "Concept albums are kind of like themed birthday parties: unnecessary and usually embarrassing." I know for a fact, though, that this friend never went to a themed birthday party where everyone was dressed up like characters from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Butterbirds plays reverb drenched, twinkly, and highly rhythmic alt-country tunes in the city of Pittsburgh. Dreamlike lyrics sung by consistent male/female harmonies narrate their folky jams beautifully, and pay tribute to song stylings ranging from honky-tonk jams to crooning ballads.
Blending pop punk, indie, and rock and roll into a well polished song thatís also interesting is not easy, but these guys sure make it seem that way. Experimenting with odd time signatures, while retaining a vibe that can naturally handle a classic rock guitar solo (wah pedal and all) is nothing to be snubbed.
