"Local duo Cari Minor and Ray Smith have played around Boulder for nearly a decade. They call themselves Strangebyrds, and their new, eponymous album showcases the duo's knack for tight arrangements and keen production. Most of their songs slide easily into the all- encompassing "folk" category,
but it's when they infuse song's with mystery and foreboding that Strangebyrds become a true gift for the ears, simultaneously unsettling and satisfactory. Their guitar work is excellent, and there are moments when the two singers voice's blend that induce chills." The Boulder Weekly-Boulder, CO.
