Life in a Birdcage
The breakthrough second album from Sudden Ensemble, former faves of the late, legendary British DJ John Peel, is a Lovers' Origin Story whose soundscapes move gracefully from scuzzy, straight-ahead rock and roll ('Speed Trackers', 'All The Satellites') to melodic country and blues ('See Me Soon', 'Black Tape', 'Zero Gravity'). For fans who like their Appalachian love songs fully plugged in; this record is sure to set a fire in the heart. THE NEW SUDDEN ENSEMBLE ALBUM 'Life In A Birdcage' is out now as the premiere issue for Box 13 Records. DISCOGRAPHY: The second Sudden Ensemble record titled 'Life In A Birdcage' has now been released on Box 13 Records.
