BIRD NAMES: an abstract pop group born in mid-2000s Chicago, noted for a large catalog of critically-acclaimed low-fi albums and a DIY ethic. The group is David Lineal and Phelan LaVelle, who presently live in Athens, Georgia.
Bird Names believes that music is a magic power — an empathic force of intuition that lets people become more human personally and builds positive community socially. For an alienated and amoral society living on the dessicated leavings of the old natural world, the magic spells of music suggest a path to the Revolution of the Unconsious necessary for our common redemption.
Since 2004 Bird Names has released five full-length albums, and six shorter albums. The band’s fifth album, Metabolism: a Salute to the Energy of the Sun, (Northern Spy 2011), is their most ambitious and accomplished work to date.
Bird Names likes to collaborate with intrinsically-motivated bands, film-makers and artists, and routinely tours the American experimental music circuit. Please contact the band at BIRDNAMES (at) GMAIL about playing a show in your town.
