Birds of Chicago
Birds of Chicago
Allison Russell (of Po’Girl fame) and her co-conspirator J.T. Nero lead this raw and soul-rich band whose stark, elemental imagery feels like scripture or a lost folk song recovered. Drawing heavily on a gospel tradition, their hamony-filled music creates a new secular sound where every word and note counts. Music is the good news and Real Midnight, the band’s poignant new Joe Henry-produced album, throbs with an urgency that feels quietly seismic. They alternate moody rock swagger with the ghostliest of soundscapes for a melancholy – but never shoe gazing – suite, full of wayward, joyful, lonesome voices raised up against the night.
