A couple of wonderful new things from the Mama Bird vaults. I’ve probably said it several times, but Portland-based Mama Bird Recording Co. has been the dearest record label to me during the past five years. It all started when I heard the first Barna Howard album and it has been all love ever since. I can wholeheartedly recommend pretty much everything they’ve ever released. Personal favorites are both Barna Howard albums, Honest Life by Courtney Marie Andrews and Not So Deep As A Well by Myriam Gendron. I would like to go on, but maybe I leave it that, because I guess it would be a little silly to list them all as favorites.
Let’s move on to the new music from the Mama Bird family. First we have Taylor Kingman who is getting ready to release his debut album on 17th of November. I don’t know a whole lot about him yet, but I’ve really liked both songs I’ve heard so far. Title track Wannabe earlier and now this one below called My Lover’s Bed that actually reminds me a bit of another Mama Bird artist Vikesh Kapoor. This is pretty much favorite song right now along with every song on the new The Weather Station and Twain albums. I’m looking forward to hearing the album next week.
The incredible Haley Heynderickx is also getting ready to release an album on Mama Bird Recording Co. It carries a title I Need to Start a Garden and will hit our hearts sometime in early 2018. The excellent first single Oom Sha La La is already out and available and they also made a music video for it.
