Bowerbirds’ In The Yard is a beautiful folk track. The band hails from North Carolina, and the track will be on their new album The Clearing dropping in March. The song is quite lush once the multiple layers of vocals and instruments kick in, and I have such a soft spot for simple yet complexly arranged folk tunes. There’s an interesting electric tone that kicks in after a short while too, so it’s a surprise of a song. Part of the upcoming album was recorded in Wisconsin, utilizing Bon Iver’s studio. The rest was recorded in a cabin. Perhaps they wanted to catch the feel of Bon Iver’s first album in the cabin, and some of the feel of the second album in the studio?
