Bird Names - People Should Get More Aware

It must be hard to throw billions of ZANY IDEAS into actual songs that are good but Bird Names have gotten pretty good at this by the sounds of their new Sings The Browns LP, it's totally frivolous with a vaguely gentrified calamity, real mad dinner party sort of stuff though there's some weird mountain/tower mystique in there too, but maybe that's because sometimes they sound like a split between Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy and Ariel Pink (particularly “Days Elevated” from the new album) but mostly they prefer to get lost in their own type of jumble, built with super naff jangles (in a good way) and baffled young joy beaming out everywhere.
