Boomkat Product Review:
For those few people left out there yet to be seduced by the allure of Kranky, Bird Show's 'Lightening Ghost' might just have the plumage to snag even the most steadfast of refusniks. Follow-up to 2005's stunning 'Green Inferno', 'Lightening Ghost' sees Ben Vida further exploring the buoyant hinterland which laps at the shores of New American Folk, Krautrock and good old fashioned campfire songwriting, eschewing Kranky's sometimes suffocating breed of electronic-drone in favour of cut-grass scented optimism. Or something... Opening through the frosted melodies and mellifluous percussion of 'Field On Water', Bird Show manages to cram Afrocentric guitars, Buddy Holly-handclaps and psych-tinged choral interludes into the kind of ear-pleasing indiepop that really shouldn't make an impact between meals - but does. Next up is 'Pilz' and a distinct change of flavour, wherein Vida traverses a more gravelly path, as tendrils of percussion and muted strings shimmer into life around a vocal so hushed it's almost not there. Elsewhere, 'Greet The Morning' could almost be Caribou (albeit minus the sugar-rush sensibility), 'Sleepers Keep Sleeping' is a harmony drenched flush of multi-vocalled goodness, whilst 'First Path Through' belies his time spent on tour with Keith Fullerton Whitman.
