We've written about The Mynabirds a few times. I just wanted to remind you that her album, GENERALS, comes out June 5th.
Vu-art: Sean Bones' bassist
Sorry, no photos, but here is a sketch of their bassist Saara Untracht-Oakner, who starred and sang on the indie film "Mow Crew".
I did take some photos of Mynabirds, but the lighting at 7th Street Entry is horrible, horrible, horrible. They do have front lights, but these are rarely turned on (the front lights are super hot). Besides, there were two photographers that were constantly taking photos; it's like they've never heard of the three-song photo policy. I understand that they have to take interesting shots, but come on, no one wants to look at 200 photos from one gig.
Like I previously said, it was only a few months since Mynabirds was here, so if you reference the previous photo, there were no changes - outside of clothing. Singer Laura Burhenn looks as skinny as ever, see crude drawing.
Vu-art: The Mynabirds
I really liked the trumpet on "Buffalo Flower", but, once again, my favorite is their title track, "Generals", which required the audience to shout back "yes" and "love". They did mess it up by just jumping right into the song, without the introduction at first, which made me chuckle a little.
The Mynabirds are currently on tour to promote their second album, GENERALS, which is currently available via Saddle Creek Records. You can hear the entire album on teamcoco.com.
