The Felice Brothers “Poor Blind Birds” – Listen

The Felice Brothers pull out all the soulful country stops on this bleak vision of reality that makes up the latest single to emerge in advance of the new album ‘Undress’.  There’s acceptance though in the refrain “we live in a world we can’t understand / poor blind birds, if we’re anything / and the world is not what it seems / to poor blind birds“.  Not a song to party to, but a song that dares to explore depths of despair.  Our kind of song, in short.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
