The Mynabirds (basically singer/songwriter Laura Burhenn) are out of Portland and have released their debut on April 27 entitled 'What We Lose It The Fire We Gain In The Flood.' I think I would have to love this band EVEN if the music weren't so good just because of their name. It's a tip of the cap to the near mythical R & B super group of the 60's featuring Neil Young and Rick James among others.
The record is fantastic, and is maybe my favorite debut disc so far this year. Just a beautiful sound that is hard to pin down...it's eclectic and incredible...well worth your time.
Here is one of my favorite tunes, enjoy...
