Birds of Avalon, “Your Downtime is Up”
Yet another band hand plucked by The Flaming Lips to play their curated All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in NY next month is Birds of Avalon. The Raleigh, NC-based group self-recorded the new album, Uncanny Valley, with all analog equipment. Mitch Easter (REM, Wilco, Pavement) helped mix the album. Yummy lo-fi goodness.
