The Wooden Birds

Add Date: June 7 

Artist: The Wooden Birds 

Album: Two Matchsticks 

Label: Barsuk

Genre: Folk pop 

Comments: The hushed, yet catchy, tones from this Austin-based band makes for a pretty good listen. Per the onesheet: "Two Matchsticks has moved away from the Southern claims of 2009's Magnolia and contains an energy not felt on its predecessor. That's partly because the debut album was written in a Brooklyn bedroom that occasionally made the results seem a bit claustrophobic." The band must have been able to get their hands on a bigger and better room for this album, then, if the tracks "Two Matchsticks" and "Struck by Lightning" are any indication.
