Where Batteries and Birds Collide!


If a review begins by noting that in the album being reviewed the review can hear subtle and not-so-subtle similarities to Styx, Electric Light Orchestra, Tom Petty, David Byrne, David Bowie, Billy Joel, The Kinks, and The Who, does it pique your interest? This album is unique and the influences are many, it’s hard to nail down a perfect genre or explanation of the sound. One thing is certain about the sound of Birds & Batteries’ new album Panorama, it is epic.

Where roots rock meets electronic, it’s a surprisingly effortless melding of sounds not often played together from beginning to end or Panorama. Released today, this album is a must own for anyone who fancies themselves a fan of feel good music. Upbeat, uplifting, and any other adjectives that start with up… the sound is enjoyable and simply makes the listener feel good.

Not a ton to say, as I’m still really sink my musical teeth into the sound of this band. Simply put, it’s a pleasant pleasant listen.

Grab yourself a beer, sit out on your back porch, and pop on this CD. You won’t be disappointed. Not convinced, check out “Strange Kind of Mirror” and “Some Hypnotic Flash” as FREE downloads.
