Editorial Reviews

The mystery of indie rock semi-legends Clem Snide's missing 6th recording 'Hungry Bird' is finally solved as the much anticipated album will finally see the light of day. Self-described by Barzelay as a 'loosely-conceived, post-apocalyptic fairytale'.

Format: Audio CD
Album opener "Me No" appeared as a bonus track on last year's excellent Lose Big, the second solo album from Snide frontman Eef Barzelay. Call it a tease - or maybe just bait. The story goes that Hungry Bird, Clem Snide's sixth studio album, destroyed the band that made it. Barzelay, who has had off-and-on trouble keeping members around, stuck his own hungry bird head so far into the ground while writing and recording the album that many of the dynamics in his band shifted during the process. Eventually Barzelay was left alone to finish the album, which - once finished - sat on the shelf, no label to release it and no band members left to tour in support of it.

While out on the road in support of last year's Lose Big, Barzelay was often asked about the "lost Clem Snide album" by both fans and interviewers. Always the generous artist type, Barzelay had no problem talking about the album and dissolution of his band. He took the blame for things falling apart and, more notably, said that the "unreleased record" was his best work yet. He also said that he didn't know when it would be released, but that he hoped it'd come out in 2010 - maybe even as an Eef Barzelay record. Then, almost out of nowhere (and one would have to think as a direct result of the critical and fan attention Lost Big earned), a release date showed up for some band called Clem Snide. Some apparently reunited band who only a few years ago, circa 2000-01, were the critical darlings of the Americana world.

And Hungry Bird, recorded almost three years ago now, does not disappoint. Despite some of the crazy descriptions Barzelay has offered the press, the record is just another fine, funny and sweet Clem Snide collection. It sounds like Clem Snide and it looks and feels like Clem Snide. Kind of slow and soft.

Soft Spot is one of my favorite all time albums. Went looking for that on vinyl. Sadly not to be found but saw hungry bird at a great deal. Listen to the full album on MP3 and honestly wasn't all that into it at first listen... it's not Soft Spot. Came back to it about a month later and gave another listen and felt there were 3-4 songs worth getting on vinyl, so I did. At this point not sure if it's the fact I have given a few more listens with no expectations or it sounds so much better on vinyl but I can say it sounds great. Very happy I got it. Only regret it is not longer. Great album. Favorite songs are Pray, Burn the Light, Our Time Will Come.... actual not I song I don't care for. If you like the Clem, get it.

Eef Barzelay does it again with this beautifully written and performed art piece. I can't believe this band had not fully main-streamed yet, but I suspect it's only a matter of time till everyone knows what I already know. Hungry Bird is just gorgeous, vibey, and crosses all the genre's. Bravo Eef.

I didn't know what I was getting, I added it to another order because it was inexpensive and I'm glad I did. It spins and sounds good. The only weird thing is the packaging really smells, like the cardboard was mixed with garbage or something... strange.
