The follow-up to the lauded Southern Skies, Filthybird’s latest record reveals an astounding depth, effectively marrying the lilting vocal melodies of Renee Mendoza with Brian Haran’s layered guitar atmospherics and anchored by a powerfully inventive rhythm section, these songs are both soulful and dreamy, familiar and fresh.
While it may easily recall classic moments of Gram Parsons, Jefferson Airplane, and Roky Erikson, don’t think Filthybird are anything but unique, reassembling the most colorful fragments of a mythic American music into something warm and resonant with just a little topping of gentle psychedelia.
The album is out on Holidays For Quince Records on October 19th.
