Show Review

Bowerbirds' song "Sweet Moment" is about just that; something fleeting, meant to hold on to as long as possible, until a monster wind blows it all away. So with that, the folk thumbing, North Carolina duo set up a story of a young couple who find themselves on the cusp of such a moment. They could run away from their fate, choosing love, hope, and a little bit of recklessness. But, it might not be much of a reality. "Sweet Moment" is from the band's recent album The Clearing.

Artist Bio

Bowerbirds are an American folk band formed in Raleigh, North Carolina in 2006. The group comprises Philip Moore (vocals, guitar), Beth Tacular (accordion, vocals) and Mark Paulson (violin, vocals). Allmusic writer Stewart Mason places their sound on "the dividing line between the freak folk contingent led by Devendra Banhart and Joanna Newsom and the more straightforward sunshine pop of Lavender Diamond." Their debut album, Hymns for a Dark Horse, released under Burly Time Records in 2007, received favorable reviews. Bowerbirds have toured in support of The Mountain Goats, with John Darnielle referring to the band as his "favorite new band in forever." Their second album, Upper Air, was released July 7, 2009. The band released The Clearing on March 6, 2012.
