Editorial Reviews

The return of classic, progressive pop heralded by The Shins, Beulah, Ted Leo, and the Pernice Brothers has produced many followers. But too often today's young, literate power-pop groups simply meet the expectations of their genre without exceeding them. A great guitar-pop band needs to add something special to the canon; the line must be straddled where a song remains universal, while offering inspired innovations from within. The Bye Bye Blackbirds are a great guitar-pop band. On their debut full-length, the band creates a powerful testament to pop music's capacity for depth, beauty, and expressiveness. Boasting multiple songwriters, each with his own style, the group draws easy comparisons to Big Star, Teenage Fanclub, and Buffalo Springfield. These true students of song-craft are as eager to cite the influence of consensus progressive-pop geniuses like Elvis Costello, The Go-Betweens, and Prefab Sprout as they are the more obscure ones, like recluse song architect Bill Fox, transcendent choirgirl Judee Sill, garage-pop masters The Reigning Sound, and criminally ignored Kiwi-rockers Sneaky Feelings.

Format: Audio CD
What I love about this band is the rich legacy of pop music to which they pay tribute. There's a long winding thread of great songwriting stretching from The Bryants in the 50's, to Lennon & McCartney in the 60's, through Chilton & Bell in the 70's, McLennan & Forester in the 80's, all the way up to contemporary greats like Joe Pernice, and Don McGlashan. This thread is intricately woven into Houses & Homes. If you're a fan of sophisticated rock music, you definitely owe it to yourself to check these guys out. Not only for the songwriting but for the great sounding guitar work and the awesome harmonies, all captured perfectly in on this wonderful recording.
