Laura Burhenn's debut album under The Mynabirds moniker is a blast of old-timey gospel, folk, and rhythm and blues. Titled What We Lose in the Fire We Gain in the Flood (Saddle Creek), the album sounds like Burhenn - who once called herself half of the indie rock duo Georgie James - reaching back, pulling her favorite classic records off the shelf, letting them spin through the night, and seeing what sticks in the morning....as it should. When the Omaha based musician stopped by the Guest Apartment earlier this year, some revealing conversation suggested that's exactly what happened over the course of the recording process.

In our latest episode of the Guest Apartment, Burhenn joins us in the piano room to discuss her new project, as well as present a few bare bones versions of three of her album's songs. Though stripped of some of the more ornate sonic accessories featured on the record, performances of "The Ways of Looking", "Let The Record Go", and "What We Gain in the Fire" still convey Burhenn's charm, endearing personality, as well as a poignant sense of intimacy as she plays through them. Inter-cut with engaging conversation, Baeble is proud to present this unique look at a very promising solo musician we think you'll soon be hearing a lot about. - David Pitz

The debut album from The Mynabirds is available now. Download "Numbers Don't Lie" and "Let The Record Go" for free from Saddle Creek's media section.
