Prime Cuts Playlist: Birds Of A Feather, Downloading Together

Weekly Playlist

We know a theme when we see one, a pair of “bird” bands, flocking together for your downloading pleasure (though there’s little more than their names to put them in the same category).

Evan Birdsong of Blackbird Harmony

Evan Birdsong of Blackbird Harmony

We start with a tune on the Americana tip from Blackbird Harmony. You might remember Blackbird from our Free MP3 of the Day, “Picture Of You,” dating all the way back to the old days of December 2011.

Blackbird Harmony is actually Evan Birdsong, a singer/songwriter who draws from both Jay Farrar and Lou Reed to create a breed of Southern American folk that’s as cold and metallic as water from the bottom of a well.

This cut from the elusive singer called “Haunted Hearts” can be found on the album called Angel With Outstretched Hands.

A Lot Like Birds

Birds of a different feather are A Lot Like Birds, a fluid band of 6 to 8 people who say they’re known for their “tendency to experiment with several diverse genre influences and their incorporation of orchestral and ambient sound-scapes contrasted by chaotic, schizophrenic episodes.”

This one, the charmingly titled “Your Ex Marked My Spot,” grabs chunks of riffage from everyone between Cradle of Filth and Kansas (two bands never before mentioned in the same sentence).

This one’s from their debut album, Plan B. They have a new one out on Doghouse Records called Conversation Piece and can be seen live in places like Otis Orchards, WA (January 14, 2012) and Cleveland, OH (January 26, 2012).
