Last years Feast of Hammers album by Birdeatsbaby was an intoxicating blend of goth-chamber-pop that made for an evening of (un) easy listening. The band embarked on a successful tour of the United States, making a pit stop in Seattle where I got to hang out with the band and enjoyed their explosive live show. A feeble attempt to conduct an interview at the venue turned into an email exchange that shed light on the bands creative process. Mishkin offered up tantalizing hints of a forthcoming solo record which intrigued me. How would Mishkin’s solo work differ from the band setting?
Earlier this year I had the opportunity to listen to and review the latest album by Brighton, England‘s Birdeatsbaby. I was absolutely blown away what I was listening to – it reminded me of some sort of hybrid between Tori Amos and Rasputin – but with an edgier stance at times. I had the chance to have extensive email chats with lead singer, Mishkin when she let the bomb drop – the band would be in Seattle within the next few weeks, would I like to meet up with them? Uh…of course!
