Brown Bird’s 2009 album The Devil Dancing was an unheralded, under-rated classic bursting with sparse, haunted folk tunes, outlaw country and gypsy riots. In the brilliant and menacing Wrong Black Mare was a tune that turned up in plenty of the MM contributors end of year best of lists.
So cue much rejoicing and metaphorical high fives when we discovered Brown Bird had a new 4 track EP up on their Bandcamp page, The Sound of Ghosts is available now digitally and, from May, on CD – first edition limited to 500 copies, hand silkscreened in Providence, RI.
There will also apparently be a new album later this year too…something we are already very much looking forward to!
