Founded by former Mission Of Burma member Roger Miller, Birdsongs Of The Mesozoic represented a complete departure from the guitar-centric post punk strategies he investigated in MOB. Abandoning his axe in favor of piano, the work he instigated in Birdsongs (alongside Martin Swope, Rick Scott and Space Negros founder Erik Lindgren) remains completely sui generis. Taking cues from both the modern classical canon and the systemic minimalism of Glass and Reich and welding them to a carapace of rhythm machine pound and R.I.O-ish angular astringency, this debut EP finds them in complete command of a radically new musical vocabulary thats uniquely their own.
I've just been informed that this amazing EP has been reissued on Cuneiform as part of a 2xCD comprehensive collection of all of Birdsongs Of The Mesozoic's early recordings. Please support these artists and this excellent label and purchase a copy for yourself.
