Bowerbirds: The Clearing

Folk outfit Bowerbirds' third album flirts with jazz and rock without clouding the rustic simplicity that first put the band on the map.

Bowerbirds: Upper Air

Bowerbirds' approach hasn't changed much at all on their second album, but we're not complaining.

Bowerbirds - "Overcome With Light" (video)

Even at its brightest moments, such as the appropriately-titled “Overcome with Light”, The Clearing feels dark. Each track seems to emerge out of a deep dusk, and none can free themselves entirely of the shadows. But it is in the midst of this very shroud of sorrow that the album stands as a testament to hope. -- Emma H. Sundstrom
