Bird Courage’s Organic Warmth [stream]

Posted on the 20 February 2013 by Thewildhoneypie @thewildhoneypie


I almost always love “stripped” versions of songs better than the originals. If a band can perform sans electricity and keep my attention, sign me up. Expert organic performers, Bird Courage are one of those bands.

Stripped is nothing new to Bird Courage, who actually met through continually crossing paths while out busking. Together, they can still be spotted on the streets and subways playing songs for fortunate passersby. Like the exquisite marriage of Iron and Wine and The Tallest Man on Earth, their earnest folk instrumentation and introspective lyrics meld to form a sound that is warm and welcoming — listen, kick back, and stay a while.

Their latest single, “Mayshower”, praises freedom through light acoustics and dense harmonies, and they’ll be celebrating its release February 20 at Rockwood Music Hall. Swing and sway the night away to the sound of Bird Courage, who remind us that sometimes less is so much more.
