Filthybird / Bio

From Holidays For Quince Records:
Filthybird signs to Holidays for Quince Records
April 2010

Holidays for Quince is proud to announce a partnership with cosmic American combo Filthybird. The four-piece ensemble has had an busy year, migrating from Greensboro NC to the Triangle, opening a guitar repair shop in downtown Graham (Fret Sounds), and putting the finishing touches on a brilliant new full-length record, Songs for Other People. The follow-up to the lauded Southern Skies, Filthybird's latest record reveals an astounding depth, effectively marrying the lilting vocal melodies of Renee Mendoza (Ashrae Fax) to Brian Haran's (Glenn Branca Orchestra, LaMonte Young projects, Viridian) layered guitar atmospherics. Anchored by a powerfully inventive rhythm section, these songs are both soulful and dreamy, familiar and fresh. Lush, breezy and cinematic arrangements may recall the best moments of Gram Parsons, Jefferson Airplane, and Brian Wilson, but this band is unique, reassembling the most colorful fragments of a mythic American music into something entirely new. Stay tuned for a street-date in the fall!

“Filthybird is the must-see. From the sound of Brian Haran's guitar to the wounded songbird quality of Renee Mendoza's voice, this band's perfected its supple tone and is now attaching it to mesmerizing tunes.”
