Birdmonster: From The Mountain To The Sea

From The Mountain To The Sea
Fader Label [2008]

Fire Drills Review:

From The Mountain To The Sea is the second full-length release by San Francisco indie rockers Birdmonster . The bands debut was a more straight ahead rock album but this record finds the band hooking up with producer Tom Schick (Ryan Adams, Norah Jones, Rufus Wainwright), which provided a balance and guided the band into a more overall underlining Americana sound. Now don't get the wrong impression because From The Mountain To The Sea still has a big sound but this small refinement in pace lets the songwriting shine through and really holds it all together for a great listen!

Key Track: "Born To Be Your Man"

Band With Similar Fire: Marah
