I don’t have much to say about Birdie Hilltop because, frankly, I don’t know anything about them. The only official website connected with them is their labels’ who offer this biography:
“birdie hilltop was formed in lancaster, pennsylvannia after the mccaskey high school graduation in 1998. they like lots of things like eating at diners and throwing frisbee at the park in nueva york, but music, movies and skateboarding is where their heart is.”
This reminds me of some of the early Elephant 6 stuff if you took away the some of the more trippy aspects. By that, I mean that it feels like Robert Schneider writing lyrics over Jeff Mangum’s instrumentation. But I guess it could just be the lo-fi nature of it that’s throwing me off. The roughness of the recordings only seem to add soul and depth to the music, so try not to let it get you down.
