Hey, this guy gets two points for trying to make this look like an actual CD rather than just some shitty, tossed-together demo. Unfortunately, the back patting kind of has to stop there. Actual Birds is one dude and a four-track, with the occasional buddy helping him out vocally or instrumentally. At its best it occasionally sounds like an older and fatigued Soophie Nun Squad when they decide to go a capella. But mostly it sounds like some nasally voiced dude singing folk songs in someone’s basement with too much reverb in the mike.
