Your Daily Lick: Birdmonster

From the Mountain to the Sea (Fader Label)



From the moment the acoustic guitars of "My Love for You" chime in, it's clear this record is nothing like the band's last. Instead of tightly wound and abrasive, most of Birdmonster's new material is bright, spacious, and folksy, though no less charming — the result of writing in the Pacific Northwest and recording with Tom Schick (Ryan Adams).
