I am quite thrilled that the Bowerbirds are opening for the Mountain Goats on their upcoming Fall tour. Those unfamiliar with the North Carolina trio are missing out on the group's all too lovely harmonies, warm acoustic strumming and stark, skeletal melodies. There latest album Hymns For A Dark Horse is exactly that - natural and gothic, yet tinged with light.

Olive Hearts - Bowerbirds
(Just wait 'till the stomping musical buildup kicks in at the the 1:57 mark)
