New Music Thursdays – Baby Birds Don't Drink Milk "Eating With Horses"

In keeping with the psych theme, BBDDM is a Kansas City collective who create stunning, secretly conventional pop songs via some unconventional and noisy methods.

I’m being lazy today, so we’ve chosen a few more animal themed bands to sandwich together to give you a better idea of their sound. Think Deerhunter meets Panda Bear and Grizzly Bear. Despite these and other references the band has gotten (Sonic Youth and Radiohead to name a couple), the guys in Baby Birds Don’t Drink Milk keep things pretty DIY – releasing tapes on various labels and handmade CDRs on their cooperative label Chomp Womp. Their latest effort, Eek Shriek Beak Eek Shriek Beak is one such CDR (the tape was put out by Best Kept Secret). Both beautiful and haunting, the single “Eating With Horses” is one of the more upbeat tracks on the disc, fuzz and all.

  1. What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various themes. I have to first of all give kudos to whoever created your theme and intermediate of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an astounding post. I honestly believe there is a ability to writing articles that only a few posses and frankly you got it. The combining of clarifying and upper-class content is decidedly extremely uncommon with the massive amount of blogs on the net.
