White Birds, drawn in part from former members of Drink Up Buttercup, put out a tape with our pals at Grizzly Records (also the homes of self-loving DUDES) at least fairly recently, but I've been sitting on it... it feels like a month... while Liz and I've been hand-dubbing 100 cassette mixtapes. In that time, they've actually begun touring the northeast with Asobi Seksu. That and edding preparations aside, their introduction to a discriminating slice of the world is a self-titled four song EP, produced to preview an upcoming full length. If precedents hold, it will be packed with deftly made harmonies, a well-considered abundance of reverb, and (cue sappy wrap up noises) a sound all their own.
