Lady & Bird

Beguiling and mysterious, the self-titled eponymous debut album from Lady & Bird performed and recorded by French singer-songwriter Keren Ann and Bardi Johannsson of the Icelandic band Bang Gang exists in a unique universe wholly of its own creation. Subtitled "A Children's Story For Adults," the ten-song CD is certainly not aimed at the preschool set. Far from it. Lady & Bird tells the story of two curious, disembodied creatures who are stuck in the bodies of a pair of grownups. From selections like Lou Reed's "Stephanie Says" or "Suicide Is Painless" (alias "The Theme from M*A*S*H") to the eight delicately haunting original compositions you can catch a glimpse of these two peculiar innocents as their quiet melodies slip between the crack of night and day, and seep into our natural world.

    Through early morning fog I see
    Visions of the things to be
    The pains that are withheld for me

    I'm wasting the hours floating in my bed
    And placing sunflowers over my head
    You're facing the doorway waiting for a sign
    To stop me in some way from crossing the line
    And if you walk real slow
