Sounds of the Day #18/2014: Bird Traps

Bird Traps - Religious Knife

Please risk one ear or two for this fantastic project from Australia - hear beauty, eternity, infinity, loss, sadness and disappearance coalesce into shimmering microtextures. Simply adorable ! A perfect audio-portrait of a "bird trap" - it must be really infinitely and eternally sad to be a "bird trap" - waiting for a bird to come, maybe a lifetime. Interesting and highly original stuff. Watch out for the full LP coming mid July 2014 ....[SKG]
