About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: November 15, 2010
  • Artist / Band: Futurebirds
  • Hosting Show: Gold Soundz
  • Sound: Dan Kinney

Corralled from front porches, basement couches and backyard bonfires around Athens, Ga., the six fellas that comprise Futurebirds seem to have an appreciation for the rich, southern gothic, independent music history their hometown has birthed (see R.E.M., the Elephant Six Collective and Drive-By Truckers).

And even though none of the members were born by the time the Flying Burrito Brothers released their first album, The Gilded Palace of Sin, it’s clear they were deeply affected by it. On the band’s full-length debut, Hampton’s Lullaby, the band firmly digs its feet into southern psychedelic-rock soil, while keeping its head high in the clouds of breezy pop. The distant, sparkling guitars are, all of the sudden, not too distant, and yet as barreling as ever. The hazy vocals hum lazy commentary one minute, then straight out belt fiery southern canticles the next. And when all of these elements coalesce, things get blissfully heady.
