Bobby Frisco - Them Birds That Fly
Some Records aren't recorded to fit in, or sell to the herd. Some records are made to just be free. Despite the obvious irony involved in that statement, Bobby Frisco's Them Birds That Fly is one of those records.
Dry folk, and eclectic rock has minced its worlds on this 2004 release, and its not to shake a tail feather at (ok I'm sorry last one). In all seriousness, if you like folk subtletly and soft spells of acoustic lyricism, get a copy of any of Bobby Frisco's albums. A terrific first song to experience is Ride. Adding a nice celtic feel to this LP smack in the middle of the CD is perfect move. Organ, harmonica's and sweet guitar effects on the occasion make for an upbeat record at times. Like the title track, which has probably the most upbeat tempo of all ten track, features a banding of different instruments melting together for a floaty acoustic folk blues number.
For those in search of that kindergarten storytelling type sound, join this guy on track seven Curiousity, which bleeds in harmonica lead, and deliberate child like delivered vocals. Though The Argentine never leaves the same basic chord, its old country acoustic flocking of folk has a nice backbone. Canary is another track that follows a child like vocal delivery, and is heavily anchored by harmonica lead bridges.
Them Birds That Fly isn't exactly burning up billboard, nor will Bobby Frisco for that matter, but who cares, as long as artists like Frisco continually record their style, the industry will continually be a diverse universe chalk full of integrity.
