Bowerbirds played a hauntingly inviting show at the Casbah on Sunday with Dry the River opening. As on Bowerbirds’ new album, The Clearing, the chemistry between Beth Tacular and Phil Moore was thick and deep. Excited fans filled the small venue, singing along to every lyric, but maintained respectful silence as the humble Beth and Phil spoke between songs. The sound was flawless (though Beth’s fiery voice and accordion could always stand to be louder) and gave a great representation of the tonality and feeling in their recorded works. The Clearing was recorded in Bon Iver’s Wisconsin studio, and can be pre-ordered on sexy white vinyl now.
