050 birdt 'Place For One Day'
Cat no: homen050 Artist: birdt Album: Place For One Day Release Date: 10/01/14 Format: Four panel matte card CD
birdt a wonderful group from the Netherlands who make incredibly wistful and tender folk, with a hint of electronic. The group is made up of Janne Mansens on violin and second vocals, Sascha Schmitt on accordion, our very own Gareth L. Davis on bass clarinet, and led by the very talented Bardt van der Dennen on guitar and vocals.
It always surprises people when they find out that Home Normal is not just an ambient label, with a strong love for really excellent songwriters, harsh noise and electronica when its right. The focus has and will always be good old organic music after all, and at the very root of the birdt full album debut ‘Place For One Day’ is a beautifully organic and free spirit.
