The story goes Arbor Labor Union was born from a peach tree in Georgia in the American south, and on that tree they heard a bird singing, a calling.

The four members have reinterpreted that birdsong into a psychedelic, repetitious and joyful rock ‘n’ roll call for arms just for you. It’s called Mr Birdsong and it’s the brilliant, opening chugging juggernaut of a track from their debut album I Hear You.

Just. Love. This. Track.

Listen below.

Arbor Labor Union

In May, Arbor Labor Union (formerly known as Pinecones) will release I Hear You worldwide via Sub Pop.

It is gnarled motorik punk in the vein of Protomartyr, Wipers, Hüsker Dü and Pissed Jeans and on the evidence of excellent first single Radiant Mountain Road we are looking forward to the full album immensely.
