2nd release from Typewriter, led by Bandola, former singer/writer from The Lucy Show.
As before, mostly composed and performed solo - but with some smashing help from musical friends like John Morrison (of L KAGE & HEFNER), Rob Lord (leader of London's premiere experimental group AUSGANG & former member of the PRIMITIVES), as well as Cal Sawyer (from Canadian sonic wildmen SUPERCONDUCTOR), the all-encompassing Calgary talent that is Peter Moller (ex-Ripchords), and a heartbreaking saxophone performance on the song 'Gone Foreverafter' from Ian Ritchie (of legendary Liverpool cult band DEAF SCHOOL).
What Allmusic.com has said about 'Birdsnest'****
"...sounds almost like a collision between Amon Duul, and Pink Floyd's most disturbing sound effects ("Quicksand"), lo-fi folk-blues busking, and stately meditative piano balladry with hints of vintage David Bowie and Paul McCartney. That's hardly all the territory the album covers, but it gives you an idea of both how wide-ranging it is...." - Jimmie James
What The BigTakeover (NYC) has said about Birdsnest:****
There are little movements through sound weaving against the solid vision of the album, tracing pathways from Sonic Boom back to Lucy Show and then around to Pink Floyd and back again. Bandola holds almost every song up to atmospheric heights with his signature shimmering guitar and his sometimes enchanted vocals. This album is an adventure that seems to change a little with each listen, and each listen is a little better. - Jack Rabid
