 Mess, Kristin / Birds of California [coll] – [555 recordings]

kittywompus   9/14/2022   A Library

Released 2009

Side A is a mellow and dreamy indie rock album with just enough casual strumming and echoey vocals to make this the perfect backdrop to any quirky 2010 indie love story. The second (Paul Is Dead) and third track (Brief Addendum) bleed into one another creating a psychedelic whirl down the spiraling emotions of the bittersweetness and resentment of heartbreak, a unifying thread between both sides. Kristin mess’ sleepy voice leads side B with acoustic guitar through reflections on past love, youth and sadness, tear-stained cheeks and all. Touching on lost friendships once thought undying, “Eleanor” harkens to a time when we all asked our childhood bestie “We’ll be best friends forever right?”.
