SODA review via cassette gods
Sometimes I’m just not in the mood for slow build textural drone works. Hell, I’m only human! Baby Birds Don’t Drink Milk (Crazy ass band name, but cool right?) wallow in the lush life of methodically constructed music. Their sculpted tones did nothing for me when I first listened. I was kinda distracted to be honest. The night was calling my name, but I wanted to sit down with this tape and stare it down. So I listened, yet heard only the muttering crank in my head. I don’t recommend forming an opinion of some band’s musical efforts while in a foul mood, but that’s what I did…I’m guilty of not paying attention to BBDDM. I’ve since listened again and the patience of the musicians to record this work must have been great because I don’t think I could’ve accomplished the slow motion performances. Now, I might be a faster bpm dude who likes songs, but BBDDM is recommended to the listener who can focus on minutia. I have this suspicion that I’ll go back to this tape and suddenly find new things to like about it. Such is life.
