Album review: 'Things I Remember from Earth' 


'Things I Remember from Earth'

30th Century Records

Here's another dose of that psychedelic pop from Maybird, with nods to emo and indie. The self-production on the new, 10-song disc "Things I Remember from Earth" has the band draped in a layered sonic tapestry throughout, though it doesn't repeat itself. Each tune seems to have its own stunt or effect or mood, waiting in the shadows.

Sometimes the shadows are the effect -- whether it's a dreamy steel-guitar passage or vocals ensconced in rapturous flight. Josh Netsky's voice is uniform throughout, but any threat of monotony is erased by the various melodic options that Netsky and guitarist Sam Snyder use in their production. Every cut is a gem. Major Tom would be proud.

Maybird plays at its free record release party on Friday, May 3, 8 p.m. at Radio Social, 20 Carlson Road. 244-1484.
