The Wooden Birds, Magnolia; Sugar mp3

by Landry on May 10, 2009

The Wooden Birds, a new band for Andrew Kinney (American Analog Set), releases Magnolia, their new album, tomorrow, May 12th, 2009 on Barsuk Records.

A mellow, straight-ahead, Neil Young sounding 12-track continuum, Magnolia highlights Kinney’s natural singer/songwriter knack, elegantly centering round the simplicity of a few chords of acoustic guitar and easy, albeit prominent, percussion (including a welcome tambourine). Kinney’s authentically inviting vocals receive the compliment, here and there, of just the right female harmonies.

Magnolia presents 47 minutes of pleasantly enveloping listening.
