BIRD’S MILE HOME: Self-titled: LP

Dec 28, 2010

I have never really delved into alt-country. I’ve dipped my toe; I enjoy some of the well-known stuff, like Uncle Tupelo’s No Depression and Ryan Adams’s Heartbeaker and most Wilco. Whenever I hear any alt-country, I pretty much want to listen to one of the above-mentioned bands—even when it’s something I’m mildly interested in like Lucero. Maybe one day when I feel like listening to this type of thing and Uncle Tupelo and the others I have in reserve just ain’t cutting it, then maybe I’ll venture the way of Bird’s Mile Home. Until then, BMH is just gonna make me put on “Graveyard Shift.”
