Four Birds





The inflection point is called
Four Birds” and it comes in the form of eleven magnificent original
compositions that ostensibly distance us from the more rigorous twelve-bar
blues and, while still being present at all times, bring us closer to a much
more creative and mature production, full of folk, country and other roots
music references  with the band´s
personal touch,  an experienced band that
has worked many years along the circuit and perfectly knows, not only the required
concept but also manages each and every one of the stylistic rudiments
necessary to achieve a brilliant result. Recorded at the Audiofeeling studios
with Diego Gracia as sound engineer, produced by the band itself which also
sign almost all of the songs.


Four Birds” gathers
between acoustic and electric at all times, wisely alternating two concepts
frequently used by the band live. From the delicious and rural, with undeniable
tinges of American folk “What else” going through the electric, and
at the same time bluesy “Trouble” to get to “She never says she
loves me” where Jazz and Blues are condensed
equally. In “Miss Mean” the band reaches more than outstanding
composition level and the song goes through country folk with enormous depth
and feeling becoming one of the little gems that we can discover on this
record. “Fish in a bucket” is based on a spectacular Electric Blues
riff, an incendiary guitar solo by Pepe Vázquez, even reaching an almost funk rhythm
tension in some moment to take us back to the acoustic sound in “Romantic
Films” and the Delicious “Things that really Count”. In the
autobiographical “Four Birds” the band returns to the most energetic
Blues origins by taking us to “Driving down the hole” and ending up
with “Wayfaring Stranger”, the only piece not composed by the band
and country blues oriented “Looking for a Gig”.




The perfect place, the
crossroads where musical roots coming from the Blues converge and explore many
other traditions in American music. A record called “Four Birds” as a
result of the very own character from a great band called Blues Whale.
