Editorial Reviews

The Clearing is the third album by the Bowerbirds, and as is often the case for bands that have found steady success, they had more time and better resources to make it. This is a bigger record, then, with bolder sounds and a broader scope. Thing is, these songs don't cede to the increased production demands. The guitars and strings, codas and bridges simply make these thoughts more urgent, more vital and more necessary, but not one bit less permanent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical March 17, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Bowerbirds have been one of the most interesting things going on in the indie/folk world. No other band sound so organic, real no voices go along better with the style of music than with bowerbirds. With any of their albums you are immediately taken to a campfire setting, and their music is soothing to the soul in a way that Iron and Wine, Horse Feathers, etc come up short. The man and woman dynamics on the singing are unbeatable with this group. On "The clearing" the band continues to evolve, and this time around incorporate fuller instrumentation, giving the group's songs more access to a bigger audience. If you are new to the bowerbirds start with their last album Upper Air because it's a more middle ground representation of their music and is superb to say the least!

5.0 out of 5 stars New talent, nice production November 28, 2012

Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I had never heard of this group, so I had little info to go on and buy. That being said,I listened to their mp3 cuts and liked what they produced. The group's songs are very soothing and I'm interested in hearing there next work. Good debut. 5 here means very good, not over the top. Always room for improvement some where, some how.
