Raleigh's The Bowerbirds play spare folk complemented by soaring vocals and accordion. They're signed to Bloomington's Dead Oceans, who recently released a mini-doc for their new album The Clearing, in which they talk about a host of bad luck including, but not limited to: injured Corgi puppies, broken ribs, breakups and hospital stays. Don't worry, though; it all ends up okay. What follows is a pretty beautiful love story between the two vocal leads Philip Moore and Beth Tacular.
You can get set up with an advance deluxe edition of The Clearing over at Secretly Canadian Distribution.
