Active Bird Community "Amends (Barsuk)"
Amends is the Barsuk debut for the young Brooklyn-based band Active Bird Community. This is a record full of big ideas and bigger execution. Their music is full of operatic drama, with big changes is volume, timbre, and energy. Also, there are occasional horn parts. Its like if Beirut made an album of Weezer covers (strictly the first two albums, of course). Check out the big chords of “Baby Its You.”
