The first time I heard them I heard a twenty or thirty second piece from a song and I immediately went to Amazon to order both of their full lengths and got their debut Plan B off of Bandcamp. I just couldn't imagine going on without having this band in my life, they are that good.
Today I want to talk about their debut full length Conversation Piece for the simple reason that I listened to it today so it's on my mind.
The addition of extra instrumentation (e.g. brass in Vanity's Fair), programming (A Satire of a Satire of a Satire is Tiring) and spoken word segments (Truly Random Code) keeps things fresh and lays a solid foundation for the next album to build on.
I listen to a lot of music, and I do mean a lot, so a lot of albums come and go, but every now and then I'll hear an album and I just know it's a keeper. It took A Lot Like Birds less than half a minute to make me a fan for life so I hope everyone who reads this will give at least one song a chance, I have embedded the two catchiest songs in my opinion, although I could have replaced both of them and remained happy about my choices.
Listen, love, buy.
