Biography

Emotional. Chaotic. Haunting. Intense...Now entering the grim anti-fairytale of No Place, the latest full- length album from Sacramento’s A Lot Like Birds.

The dynamic ten track album takes listeners on an eerie roller coaster of beautiful chaos, with arching cinematic interludes laced between destructive gut-wrenching, chill-inducing masterpieces. The complex construction of No ... Read more in Amazon's A Lot Like Birds Store

The band members create a profound landscape while Cory and Kurt populate the scene with dense lyrics.

I cannot recommend this album enough, it is an awesome journey/experience if you really just sit down and listen to it all the way through.

A Lot Like Birds return with sharp ambition to create "No Place." Not so much a departure, rather, an enhancement from 2011's "Conversation Piece." Everything you've come to appreciate about ALLB is evident, but with a more diversity. In fact, there is nothing passive about "No Place." It is a record built on intricacies and technical engineering. ALLB use texture to compel listeners, but comparatively impose paranoia.

In an interview, Cory described the record in terms of "rooms." Each track is a room that represents a space of "never quite feeling at home." The hierarchy of alienation is apparent throughout "No Place." The thought-provoking element is that - it's a paradox. The record sounds beautiful, but the lyrics and atmosphere are unnerving. This establishes a premise "Conversation Piece" was missing. "No Place" is a conceptual album that is executed by lengthy soundscapes. Even with songs breaching the seven-minute mark, ALLB manage to maintain the unexpected. The twists and turns, shifting pace, and layered sounds make the songs seem shorter than they are. They are "songs within songs"

"In Trances" initiates the atmosphere by having nearly the entire track be written in metaphors. Dialogue from spoken word to faint screams, "The glass went only inches into my skin but only inches was enough. And once the guilt has had its fill, only then will the animals eat me as well." Stampeding off the intro track, "No Nature" creates internal turmoil "..And live this one final night in my desolate room. The room inside my head, ceilingless, fulfilling." The uncanny "No Nurture" is reminiscent of big record closers but is track oddly three. The gradual build and tone of the song goes against the common norm, making the listen somewhat out of place.

This is the first I've heard from A Lot Like Birds, and I was blown away. This album is a perfect mix of heavier, frantic songs and melodic interludes. What remains consistent on every track though, is their lyrics that somehow manage to be broad, and all encompassing, and at the same time personal and intimate. They could be read on their own as if they were individual short stories.

Really happy with the purchase, definitely going to buy their last few albums.

Even though I do have a wide (and I mean WIDE) range of musical preference - I do have to say that this band and album has raised my standards for Post-Hardcore.

Between Cory's screaming and spoken word, Kurt's singing and spoken word with Cory, and the glorious instrumentals - there is literally no way that this album is anything short of excellent. Even though Conversation Place is still one of the best albums I have heard, this album holds up so well that it is unbelievable. I hope to see a lot more from these guys and I hope to hear more glory.

Great job, ALLB.

The title says it all
This is hands down the best album of 2013. This is a huge statement since the great bands such as ADTR and DGD also released fantastic albums and this album NO PLACE hands down is the album I stick to the most
Kurt's vocals are superb. And the little monologues throughout it manage to hit home. The lyrics in this album are truly astonishing
I would say more but I'd like you to hear it for yourself!

So the album "No place" earns a place as my number 1 spot for albums of 2013
