    Bitter Birds debut full length featuring Singer Mayberry on guitar and vocals and David Lujan on drums, vocals and bass organ. Playing music together since around 2004 in their former band Red Leaves, Lujan and Mayberry started this new project as a duo in 2011. Discovering the best way to act as both drummer and bass player for the band, Lujan built a foot pedal organ keyboard to play live and record with. They are now on their second iteration of bass pedal keys and the result can be heard on this album.

lyrics

everywhere I look I stare
nothing is worth chasing
slowly stepping walk through life
round in circles pacing
back and forth I where the floor
and all that it's encasing
people's lives of long ago
trampled by my pacing

cause I'm a black bird
I take the things I see and wrap them in dark words
I never meant to bring you down
I'm a vulture
I feast on the absurd and they've got no culture
I don't intend to make this sound.

everyone is watching me
to see which way I'm facing
round in circles carelessly
to nowhere I've been racing
delicious things
you always see
but never good when tasting
restless days and evenings
time you should be wasting
with drink in hand
a mouth of sand
know the drug you're lacing

cause I'm a black bird
I take the things I see and wrap them in
dark words
I'm a vulture
I feast on the absurd
and they've got no culture
I don't intend to make this sound

about

Bitter Birds Austin, Texas

Bitter Birds “lures the senses in with a brooding, slightly more experimental side of indie pop, which some fans have compared to early Cure – less poppy and more deliciously bleak.” – Laurie Gallardo, Austin Music Minute KUTX 98.9
