the mynabirds "generals"

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

oh, boy couldnt be more excited about this record! this being the sophomore record by the mynabirds, which is due out 6.5 on saddle creek, entitled generals. i dont make many predictions, but come this summer, me thinks people are going to be apeshit for laura burhenn – lead mynabird. their debut, what we lose in the fire we gain in the flood was one of my favorite records, and damn if it aint one of the sexiest/slow burn records i have heard in a long while. if you havent heard it, go find it now or download it via amazon. grab the first single “generals” down there. make sure you catch em at sxsw, and how nice would it be at cxcw, and a few tour dates starting soon. check their site for the dates….
