Bird By Snow unveils Common Wealth’s mystic pop
October 4, 2010
Written by Ben Van Houten
San Francisco’s Fletcher Tucker, recording as Bird By Snow, returns with his fourth LP, Common Wealth, this month on Gnome Life Records. As you’ll hear in the two songs above, Tucker has crafted something really special, working with percussionist Spencer Owen and recording wizard Tim Green to create rich, moody songs with an astonishing depth. In the foreground, Tucker’s vocals drive things ahead, examining relationships and the natural world, and they’re surrounded by a hypnotic blend of instruments and rhythms that have a rich tapestry feel.
