Bowerbirds Visit La Blogothèque Near Bowery

Bowerbirds’ CMJ set cemented the trio as favorites around here, and it looks like Vincent Moon nabbed the trio right around that high time for a LES-based, four-song La Blog session. The taping starts in an original and as yet untapped location: Economy Candy on Rivington, which is where you wanna go when you need a sugar fix or, apparently, literate North Carolinian folk music. (The resolution on this first one may be a little lower than usual, but the harmonies make up for it.)

“Bur Oak”

“We’re called the Bowerbirds … Bower, without the y.” We give you a pass, Lower East Sider — when you’re two blocks away from Bowery, that’s a fair mistake. The rest of the afternoon was less original, taping wise — inside a car, stationary busking, sidewalk strolling — but well worth a watch (better resolution, too).

“Dark Horse”

“The Ticonderoga”

“In Our Talons”
